    I make wire wrap jewellery and I was thinking about branching out to dread beads. would any dread heads here be interested in such a thing? they by my estimation would price similarly to really nice blown glass dread beads.

    good idea?

    its a good idea. I might buy one if I have funds and am around when you have them. There is also a forum for selling if your interested. BTW, thanks for stopping by. :)
     
  3. ohhhhhhh I'v though about this lots in the past! i do a lot of copper wire work with various jewelry and i was thinking about making my self some nice bead/wrap style peaces of art work, with some hemp and nice stones and copper wire.... but... I ran out of my wire and hemp! soo i need to get more

    Any way my point is….. If any one in some near future when I stop procrastinating about getting my copper wire.. If you would like one.. I’ll get around to making them post pictures and just ask ill send you a nice little gift

    I make all sorts of dread jewelry. I love using wire and chrystals, feathers, beads, anything that I can get my hands on! I also make peyote stiches.

    That kind of reminds me of something I saw at a Ren fair once. This guy was selling this wire wrap that had glass beads or charms at the bottom. You could wrap it around a braid, dread, or just a lock of hair. I really wish I had bought one.

    Keep us updated on if and when you make the jewelry.

    the only thing about wire wraps is would it catch on other dreads??
