Rustic twig christmas ornaments

You may wonder why this technology goes back so far in history. One reason is that wire production was one of the earliest results of ancient metallurgy. Soft metals such as copper, silver and gold can be easily drawn into a line even with primitive equipment, and indeed many modern steelworkers still open their hands to obtain the exact dimensions and hardness they need for a particular piece. Another reason is that no complicated casting or soldering is needed to set stones or beads, and almost any form of rough or faceted material can be packed without special tools. In addition, the degree of complexity can be as simple or as detailed as the choice of craft, including weaving in multiple pieces from very different media. Ancient and modern craftsmen have used wire-winding techniques to integrate bone, wood, cloth, ceramics and almost any material imaginable into stunning wearable works of art.
