My latest endeavor


A few weeks ago, I had a customer contact me asking if I could wrap some pendants for her. She shows Boston terriers and she had painted some Boston terriers on small pieces of stained glass. And she admired my wire wrapping. She wasn't sure if these pieces could be wire wrapped or not because of their odd shapes. Since she also lives in New Jersey, she came over with her pieces to show me. And I agreed to wrap them for her.



At that time, she had made four pieces, the ones shown in this blog. While she was here and looking at my jewelry, she fell in love with my wire crochet necklaces and asked that I create a necklace for her using one of her pieces. She would give the other three pendants to her friends.



She was so pleased with the results that she ordered 8 more pendants to sell at dog shows. She will be off to her first show tomorrow and she said she would call me to let me know how she makes out. She is so excited about this and so am I! She's very talented and it's unbelievable to me how she can paint so beautifully on such a small area. Aren't they lovely? She paints them on the textured side of the glass and then bakes them. It looks like the dog is right inside of the glass. The last two pieces she brought to me were puppies and so sweet. If she does well at this show, she'll be making other breeds and will hire me to do more wrappings. So please wish us well!

The painting of these lovely dogs on glass is very life-like and your wire wrapping complements those pieces to perfection. I hope for both of you that this venture will be successful!
