Wire & Bead Inspiration where I've collected images from some of the most amazing wire artists. Another fave is my board called Origami Paper Arts which contains not only gorgeous origami art works, but also many free patterns for creating your own origami flowers, birds, butterflies and ... gift boxes! That's right, every wire artist who intends to sell their pieces is faced with 'how to package' them, without it costing a fortune. Creating your own gift box from recycled household items and simple papers is a fantastic idea and there are links to many DIY tutorials on that board. Another great board to visit is called Jewelry Patterns & Tutorials, where I've collected links and images to many outstanding free wire tutorials. I hope you have time to check them out.
From Pinterest, I tried these two wonderful DIY projects this weekend and had a great time of it. The wire jewelry tree is quite easy to do and not only looks great, but also makes for a fun place to hang your pretties. I used Wrap IT craft wire which is very inexpensive and the whole thing took about 40 minutes to complete.

Enjoy the inspiration and have a beautifully creative day!
