Gere Bunnell has been wire wrapping for over a decade. A tinsmith by trade & the ability to visualize the final product, the transition to wire wrapping was a natural one. It’s Gere’s credo that the stone is the center of the piece; therefore, the piece is always wrapped to showcase the stone. Gere has done demonstrations at several area club shows. He has wrapped at the International Gem & Jewelry Show in Tucson.
For many years he taught wire wrap classes for an Adult Continuing Education Program and gem shows all over the midwest.
Gere’s wire wrapped jewelry is totally unique, all of the work is done by hand and each peace is one of a kind. To date, a stone has never fallen out of any of his wire settings.
