Torching Annealed Steel Wire

twistedwire

I have branched out and started twisting other types of wire for enameling  with my torch. This is annealed steel wire and works great, plus I love the rustic look for the earrings. The immersion method is used. Trees on the lower left are torched into the best green color I have (for trees). They will be spruced up with beads and put on ear wires.

I love this necklace and the abstractness of the tree design. Just another “happy accident” that occurred under the torch.
