New toy. I got a new toy this week - a blowtorch. I like working with wire but I don't like the sharp ends. The blow torch melts the end of the wire and forms little beads. I did have to sand off black residue afterwards.
I wove the copper wire onto a frame then wove hand dyed (by me) threads through it. When I held the wire in the torch, flame ran down the wire but it didn't set the yarn on fire.
It does need more beads and I need more practice at coiling the wire, but I am happy with the overall result. The brooch measures around 1" x 1 1/2"
