New Zealand jewellery designer Sally Frewin has found another use for No. 8 wire¬†by releasing a range of Fix-8 bangles made from the fencing wire.
Frewin was inspired by the Kiwi ‚Äúcan do‚ÄĚ attitude often referred to as the ‚ÄėNo. 8 wire mentality‚Äô, a reference to how the wire has been adapted for countless uses in New Zealand farms, factories and homes.
The bangles are made of No. 8 fencing wire (8mm gauge steel) electroplated in silver and copper or with a brushed metal finish.
Frewin said she wanted a bangle that looked great but that also acts as a fun reminder of a positive ‚Äėcan-do‚Äô approach to life.
