Did you say "wiber"?

Yes, I said Wiber. That's a new word that combines wire and fiber, which is exactly what this technique is all about. I'm always looking for something a little less traditional, and this fills the bill on that.

I made this choker style necklace, for the sweetest girl that works in the yarn shop in Encinitas. I got this yarn there on a past trip and it was perfect for making beads. If this type of bead interests you, be sure to check out the book "Fiber and Wire Beads and Jewelry" by Lisa Vann.

That's all for now. We'll talk soon.

Oh A new word to add to the Scrabble dictionary. We started adding words that we use and eventually they put it in an updated version.
I like the concept of mixing yarn and wire.
The necklace is pretty cool.
