Experimenting with Colored Wires

We were truly inspired by the up coming season – SPRING! These are a couple samples of new designs that will launch this year.

After experimenting with metal base wires last year, Miriam thought it would be a good idea to incorporate the combination of colored wires with copper, gold and silver. If you’ve visited Miriam Jewels at the La Jolla Open Aire Market, you might have seen some of the Telar and Classic crochet rings featuring a mix of gold and silver wire. They are extremely popular at Mixture and Hunt & Gather boutique in San Diego.
