Wire wrapping or Wire sculpture is one of the oldest techniques for making jewelry by hand. But, the use of wire forging in jewelry is a new and unique art.
Metal forging has been used for centuries in forms such as that of blacksmithing or for use in making buildings and many tools used for hard labor. However, when used in jewelry it creates a delicate and interesting piece of wearable art. Essentially it is the using of gold, silver, or copper wire artistically manipulated and hammered to wrap around a gemstone or cabochon, creating a unique piece of jewelry. It is a technique that creates simple yet artistic lines and makes the stone the main showing point using the wire to enhance instead of overwhelm the natural beauty of natures mineral gifts.
