Tuesday Tangle: Iron wire

I love to see what kinds of things can be made with different types of wire. Not only the wearable but housewares like this sinuous lamp I spotted on Etsy.

Here's a lovely necklace my friend, Barbe Saint John made with iron wire using one of my lampwork focals (it's the one on the left).

I know you're going to ask me, where do I buy iron wire? My favorite place Metalliferous has it as well as Dick Blick.

Give iron wire a try, it's inexpensive and has a trendy look!

Ohhh, I love the look of this iron wire. Does it rust? Thanks for the links!

What a beautiful lamp. Jewellery made with this wire must also be incredible.
