StreetWires Artists Collective is an eccentric working artist studio. Its main focus is on people, passion and pride. The company has people working together to design, create and market unique wire and bead craft.
Launched in 2000, the project’s aim was to train and support struggling artists. Thus, the collective provides a platform for artists to create. These beautiful art pieces then become available to the world. Furthermore, browse the StreetWires Artists Collective store for unique handmade gifts and souvenirs.
