Daniel Wilcox is a jewelry artist who primarily uses wire and crystals to construct his creations. He is a self-taught artisan who began his wire wrap journey in 2009. All of his wire wraps are created by twisting single pieces of wire together, never soldering or melting them, in an intricate weave to harness crystals. His designs are primarily inspired by the shape, color and beauty of the minerals he chooses to work with. Although his work has branched out into many other mediums and styles, wire working is his main passion. Daniel is based out of Landrum, South Carolina and looks to the mountains and nature that surrounds him for inspiration to grow in his art work.
