Fancy Wire

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

(Click on the above image for a larger, printable version)

Above, is a SMALL sample of the different types of Fancy wire that you can make.  All you need are a few tools and some wire.  Sounds pretty easy?  It is.  As with most of metalsmithing, it takes some practice.  But hey, what else do you have to do? (that’s a joke!)

Tool List:

Drill or flex shaft (with movable chuck) preferably reversible.

 This drill (Item #60614) is available at Harbor Freight Tools for under $20.00.

Or you can use a hand drill.

Or even a flex-shaft.
