BBA Team - January Challenge

For the BBA Team, our January challenge is to create something using a new technique.

Here are the tools and materials I used for my creation: wire, hammer, pliers, anvil


More materials: Silver plated chain with a toggle clasp and I made the letter "L" out of wire

I hammered the wire word "Love" to harden the wires.


I did a few different sizes before I got the size that looked the best.


Then, I attached the ends of the wire to the chain


Viola! I created a Love Necklace, which can be purchased now from my Etsy shop.

  1. How creative! I love your wire word. And these would be great as a custom option for names as well!

  2. Cool! I've seen other people make wire words before, too, but I've never tried it myself. I guess I figure I'd just make a mess of it!

  3. Wow, great job with your wire word! Edi's right that this would be a great custom item, too.

  12. Thanks all so much, I'm hoping to add this as a new custom jewelry collection, but we'll see if my hands and wire work together.
