Now that's a Jig! It's kind of like doodling in 3D. I wanted to make something that was a little different and really stood out. With the wire, I created these inverted teardrop shapes. As I was forming the feather-like plumes, I noticed how easy it would be to make a ring!
So I made one out of copper wire. I used bronze wire as an accent to the copper wire and I wired on rounds in glass and vintage plastic. The ring I made stands up pretty tall. It reminds me of a cathedral with stained glass or a bunch of stylized feathers.
Working with the jig is a lot of fun and the ring is definitely a conversation starter.
