Designed by a wire artist for wire artists. Great for any type of metalsmithing.
When I started learning wire wrap, I almost quit.
As a cabber, I didn't care for the 'store bought' settings. After trying to wire wrap, I decided I didn't really care for that either. (I still haven't found the oval part of my ring mandrel) I just couldn't seem to get the hang of forming the wire on a domed cab. After some thought, I came up with this method of shaping the wire.
Soon I was getting compliments on my work at shows from professional wire artists. Things like "We see a lot of stuff, but yours is really good" and "Just do me a favor and don't set up next to me"
It happened again last year on vacation. During the drive home I started suspecting that the real 'talent' I had may have been due to the mandrels I use!
I HAD FORGOTTEN WHAT A PAIN FORMING BEZEL'S COULD BE without a mandrel!
In doing my research for the patent I also realized how many wire artists are folks just struggling to make ends meet. A quick visit to Preston Ruther's website (www.wiresculpture.com) with all its great testimonials convinced me of that. I know these tools can help you turn a profit by making your jewelry 'proven sellers'. I really like that aspect of this project too.
I have used every effort to keep prices as low as I possibly could. I envisioned a lower price but quickly realized that was not possible. Most quotes were in the $185.00/set range (my cost) and that was just for the mandrels and not the packaging, booklet and engraving.
The result that I have achieved is a quality product, at the best price, that I am proud to put into your hands.
I spoke to a jeweler who participated in evaluating the prototypes today. I am positive that you will echo her sentiments (and mine too) when you use these tools. She said:
"I can't imagine trying to wire wrap without my templates"
