I’ve recently had an article put on the Staffordhsire Hoard website, about my work with the tiny wires produced by the Anglo-Saxons. I’ve covered some of their methods on this blog before, but I’ve moved on a long way over the last couple of years, and this articles acts as an introduction to the subject; I’ll be covering particular processes in detail over the next few months, and I’ll also be doing interacting demonstrations at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. The image (right) shows one of the items, which uses beaded wire for decorative effect.
