  • Biography

    K.C. Walton is a wire wrapping artist. Wire wrapping is one of the older techniques for making handmade jewelry. This technique is done with some jewelry wire and findings similar to wire (like head-pins) to make components. Wire components are then connected to one another using mechanical techniques with no soldering or heating of the wire. Often a wire is bent into a loop or other decorative shape and then the wire is wrapped around itself to finish the wire component making that loop or decorative shape permanet. Because of this technique for wrapping wire around itself, this craft is called wire wrapping.
