Playing with Wire

This spring-like necklace was made on the WigJig last week. It's a special project for Easter! I chose bright colors, the likes of which will be seen overflowing from all sorts of Easter baskets this weekend.

The three wire designs used in the necklace were adapted from Wonderful, Wearable Wire, a great book available from Soft Flex Company. If you've ever thought about getting a WigJig, you should definitely get this book to go along with it. The book has tons of tips and techniques that will turn even the most inept wire-worker (uh, that would be me) into a full-fledged WigJig-er!

Anyway, look for this free project in our Design School in the next few days - I'll let you know when it's posted. Even if you don't start making it until Saturday night, it's so quick and easy that you'll definitely have something special to wear (or give) this Easter Sunday.

This is the fifth in a series of free holiday projects I'm making this year. The other four are in the Design School as well, along with dozens of other free project designs - check them out! If you find something that inspires you and end up making one of your very own, please share a picture of your work with me and I'll pass it along to my fellow Soft-Flexers. We want to see what you create!

I have always wanted to try a wig jig. Your necklace is fun and colorful. For once I can't wait for Tax Day because I have a chance at winning your book.
