Dale "Cougar" Armstrong is an artist and well-known wire-working expert with numerous television appearances, DVDs and publications to her credit. Her journey into wirework was inspired by her love for rocks and minerals. A dedicated instructor, she loves sharing her ideas with people who are eager to learn her techniques.
Dale has developed and mastered a wide variety of techniques using mainly square, half-hard wire; allowing her to create heirloom quality, wire jewelry designs resembling jewelry that is 'cast', but without using any type of solder or glue.
She says, "Although I have a background in fine arts and metal-smithing, a combination of rocks, wire and students wins my heart!"
