Welcome to Stormflight Designs


If you've always wondered about how jewelry is made and fine craft is done, this is the blog for you! Our intent is to show you the step-by-step of creating jewelry from a silver-smith's and lampworker's point of view. We'll throw in some other interesting craft-work too. Consider this a "tutorial-light" blog in a way. You'll get to see the creative process from start to finish. Sometimes it may take a while to get to the finish, so please be patient! We often have to wait for the muse to strike--sometimes in the middle of a different project!

Bumblebee - Step 3

So, now lets get down to bending some wire !
The hard part is to get the wire to do what you want without work hardening it too much. I am using special filigree wire that I purchased from Victoria Lansford for this project.

It looks funny now, but it will get tweaked a whole lot more! I still haven't figured out quite how I want to put the head on--the antenna will come from the top somehow...I'll have to do some trimming and soldering for that.

Stay Tuned!
