MEET our wire wrapping artists

Melanie Barry

I love creating all kinds of art. In 2001, I began working with glass, crystal and natural stone beads, transforming everyday glassware and tableware into unique creations using shimmering silver wire. My first design was a set of wine glasses with built-in color beads, identifiers for easy recognition at social gatherings. Now I have 25+ different designs of glassware, tableware, and wine accessories in over 12 color combinations.

I'm an Artist at the Art a la Carte gallery and an active member of the Northern Virginia Handcrafter’s Guild. Often, I display my work at juried art and craft shows in Northern Virginia.

In 2002, I won the ‘Best in Show Award’ at the Burke Centre Autumn Festival. This led to starting my business Entertaining Designs LLC. I Founded and served as Show Chairman for the South Run RECenter Autumn Arts and Crafts Show, and I'm proud to say it's in its twelfth year.

I feel fortunate to have turned my artwork into a profession and business. I stay home with three children, work from my home studio, and volunteer in my community and church. Since I am an advocate of learning through artistic expression, I volunteered as an art assistant giving art demonstrations at local schools and youth events.
