This week I shared a bit about my love of wire on the ReMe Retreats website. Wire is a basic component in most everything that I create, and I'm consistently amazed by it. Below you'll find photos of some of the results of my adventures with wire, and also a behind-the-scenes peek at a few of the results of my self imposed challenge with wire and a limited selection of tools and found objects.

|Rings of Wire and Beads.|
|"Pipe Cleaners" |
|Electrical Parts and Pieces = Fancy Wire!|
|Cocooned in each link is a piece of a plastic straw.|
|The humble beginnings of my Wired Copper Cuff.|
|Its initial construction was all about the stability of the finished piece.|
|Then I began to add a few interesting functional details.|
|The free form wrapping continued.|
|In the finished cuff, I intentionally allowed a small portion of the straw |
to peek through; enough to raise interest without revealing its identity.
