Profile Information

I enjoy jewelry making in the following areas:
Wirework, Wire Wrapping
About Me - Tell us a little about yourself and your area of expertise
I have been creating jewelry most of my life. I have an online studio at http://zoraida.artfire.com. All of my pieces are handcrafted and are usually made with copper wire and semi precious gems. Some are completely made of copper or brass with no stones. I love hammering, swirling, spiraling and manipulating wire in general. I often do craft fairs and recently won a blue ribbon for one of my necklaces.
I am also interested in many other crafts. I love to crochet, write caligraphy, photography, play classical quitar, paint, draw, and many other things. I love nature inspired themes and am an avid birdwatcher. Apart from all this, I am also interested in natural health and have a BS in Natural Health with an Herbal Studies specialization.

Hi,

I tried to go to your facebook page and it couldn't find it.

Is it artz jewelry? or artzjewelry?

Thanks for your helpful reply, Zoraida! I always find how others do things to be so helpful as sometimes I just do things the most difficult way without realising what I'm doing. Only been at this for a short time and I am on a steep learning curve! I play with loads of things at first until I find what I really love to do and then I exhaust that until I 'branch out' into variations on the theme. I love your work! I've taken some time to have a look and I hope to be able to do such beautiful things in the not too distant future. Thanks again, Zoraida. All the best! Jean

Hi Zoraida! Being new to jewelry making I find the hardest thing to get my head around is finishing. Do you have any tips you would be kind enough to share about finishing a piece, more specifically, finishing coil spacers or finishing sections and adding another...? Getting started is the easy part, or so it seems... Thanks for your help! All the best! Jean

Do you have an etsy store?   If so can you send me a couple list #s and I'll include them in the treasury I'm publishing.  THANX...

It's all new to me as well. But I usually have alot to say and no outlet...LOL So, I figured a blog was a good place to start to vent, care, have fun and mabey learn new stuff and meet fascinating artists who may inspire me or in return inspire them. ^_^

I will check to see what the issue is on FB..It is buggy at times. Thanks!
