I have played with wire for several years, and finally got serious about it about 2 years ago. I primarily do Viking Knitting, flat weaving, and braiding of sterling and gold-fill wire, although I have recently branched out into hand-coiling and using more semi-precious gemstone beads. I don't do any soldering and enjoy the challenge of solving the problems of fixing the ends of wires without solder or fusing. I find this self-imposed restriction helps drive design. This is my second year doing art fairs, which I greatly enjoy. I have found that keeping up with production doesn't leave much time for another career, so I am transitioning out of my other (self-employed) job of construction and house painting.; http://www.janra-jewelry-designs.com/
