Okay, so I've been trying to work on the Getting Started section,


Only one Getting Started section?
Let's see:
Getting Started Weaving/Braiding
Getting Started Stone Wrapping
Getting Started Coiling
Getting Started Soldering

Or am I breaking things down farther than had been envisioned or is necessary?

I think those sections are great ideas. There are so many techniques in wire-work that it might make it a bit easier for people to find what they're needing if they were broken up like that.

I agree. I think the multi-section is a great way to go. It will help with organizing, too.

To this list, I'd like to add:
Getting Started Headpins and Eyepins
Getting Started Adding Beads
Getting Started Clasps
Getting Started Filing and Hammering

What else?

What about:

Getting Started Viking Knit
Getting Started Filigree

Any updates here Talia....I know DracO is down, but we should keep rolling on ideas and content.

Here's my "Wirewrapping a Crystal" article that needs a home.
http://charlieschaincraft.com/tut_wirewrap.html
Pretty basic wrapping technique....I'll work up a new tut for whatever kind of submission form WIRE ends up with.

Kodiak, you are absolutely right. And thanks for your crystal wrapping tutorial- I've read it before, and it's a most welcome addition.

So regarding the Banner-
I'd originally posted a July 15th cut-off for submissions. But considering that we've got a little more time and that we've only had one submission (and it is a rather nice submission) I don't see any reason we can't extend that out until closer to going live.
Which means we all have time to make more submissions. Smile
I know it's summer, and we're all busy with shows and life and all, but it would be fantastic to have more banner submissions.

@Gwen- A coiled flower tutorial would be wonderful! If you could break it into two sections that would be perfect. 1.) Making Tubular Coils, and 2.)Making Coiled Flowers, as a project for something you can make with tubular coils.

@celticflame99- The tuts you already have on hand- if they're not already computer files, could you scan them? I would really love to see what you've already got, because it looks like you've already got a lot, so I can start crossing tuts of the 'still needed' list.

TEMPORARY ARTICLE & TUTORIAL SUBMISSION SOLUTION:
-If you already have a tutorial or article published, you can post the URL on this thread, just like Kodiak did above.
-If you have an article or tutorial ready to go in .doc (or .jpg for a scanned submission), you can send it to my email address and I'll hang onto them until we've got a functional site. Send to this address: talia813@yahoo.com - this address is different than the one posted on my profile and recieves more attention.
Please, no gallery submissions yet.

We also already have Legba's Egyptian Coil tut, and anon has a tut on twisting wire, making a jig for a Turkish Knot ring and one for making a Turkish Knot ring, all being held for us in the MAIL library (thank-you Legba and anon!).

If anybody can put a tutorial or an article together, for anything wire-related, please please please go ahead and just do it. If it is a duplicate, that's fine. Learning the same technique from more than one source gives people more options and a more comprehensive learning experience.

The two most essentials articles that we need are
1.) Common types of wire and attribues
2.) Most common tools used in wirework (plus basic safety considerations)
Takers anyone?

Ok I stumbled across this thread looking for new ideas. I've played around with wire wrapping in the past with marginal success but I've always wanted to get back into it. I was a subscriber to Wire Artist before it went out of publication (Still majorly bummed about that).

Is the W.I.R.E. site close to be up? (or maybe it is and I missed that reading through this thread).

I've seen some awesome talent on this (the M.A.I.L.E. site) and want to explore more of this talent on the new site.

found a place with, I hope, access to internet for a bit. I'm going to give Talia the hosting info for logging on so she can start working while i'm away for the next month. I get home on the 28th of this month, with access to a computer daily again. And I don't work such a weird shift...

Drac0 is the one that's been heading things up, and he is here rather infrequently because of his job. It may get done eventually, but it will likely be awhile yet.

someone could message him if they were interested in taking the reigns and had the technical ability to do the work. he is a reasonable chap and might not mind passing them on to a motivated person.

So, did the W.I.R.E. site ever get up and running? I hope so, because I do wire wrap rings and pendants, and I could use some ideas and help.


All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
