"HI Devon; Going without the wire will certainly work in some cases, but for the general stitching, the needle is helpful because otherwise the wire bends. The needle makes it easier to work. And with using the needle, I only lose the last inch or…"

"I have used wire in bobbin lace, not needle lace. But one time someone remarked to me that when you are using wire in needle lace you don't have to use a needle. This remark seemed to be based on knowledge of someone who did needle lace in…"

"Hi Claire! Thanks for the website link. I love the work Jo is doing. And I went and had a look at your website and LOVE the combination of fabric and wire that you are doing. How are you embossing the sheets of metal? Is there a machine you can use…"

N-lace made of wire

Hello! I've been reading off and on but finally joined yesterday after asking Arachne if anyone had ever done needle lace in wire.I have an idea that has been floating around for a little while. I want to do it in wire for some reason. Mainly, I guess, because I envision this as a piece for the wall.I see the whole thing in wire, and I was stymied by the thread vs wire construction problems.

Welcome.  Please go to NOTES and read them all.  They explain our policies, our territory, and the software.  A few of our members have tried needle lace jewelry.  Go to PHOTOS, and once on that page do a search on "earrings" and "necklace".  Also look at the "contemporary" album.  You may get more ideas from that.
