Cindy Legate started wire wrapping in later part of year 2011. She has a background and education in mechanical design and some art classes for recreation education. With her recent unemployment, Cindy had a design idea to make her girlfriends some earrings for Christmas of that year, just a small variation for each pair of earrings. With her failure, started a journey of self education and self taught in the form of wire jewelry. Research with the internet and the public library, a passion for all things wire started. Her friends encouraged her that she should sell her wire jewelry, which in turn lead to some teachings with a local bead store and later with teenagers and pre-teens for the girl scouts. She sells through Etsy, Art/craft shows and a few consignment stores located in her area of Midwest Illinois.
