Life as a Wire

We all start life much like a spool of wire...

coiled up tight, dead soft, and ready to be molded into any shape or form.

And life is the process, where our lives are snipped and bent, twisted and rolled...

all in an effort to create something beautiful.

Sometimes the wire is stubborn and it needs to be bent a few more times or snipped and twisted again.

Sometimes the design isn't complete without some added beauty and the other pieces of our life that make it full and complete are woven in and wrapped around us.  

And though the process is often hard, the results are worth it...

 and after the wire has been worked until it can be worked no more and the Worker's hands are tried from the pulling and squeezing....

the design is complete, and the creation is finished.

All that remain are the last few finishing coils and the final touches to make the design perfect.

So, the Worker sits down for the last few hours to finish his design
and waits for the perfect moment to reveal what he has created.


  1. Great analogy! Your pieces are lovely and the wire work is really nice.

  2. OH Marcie you done good!!!! That is awesome and what a fun way to post it! You go Girl!!!!!

  3. These pieces looks wonderful ! I'm looking forward to see it when you're done! I'm sure you will make unique jewelries as always! :)

  4. You are a beautiful soul, Marcie. That is such a wonderful analogy. I will be mindful of this the next time I pull out the wire (actually for a wedding party - this puts a whole new spin on it!)
    Enjoy the day!

  5. Nice! I can't wait to see the complete piece! Your creations are always so pretty!

  6. Looks fantastic - I've always wanted to try this type of wire work. You've done a great job!
