I can't really see the construction, but it looks as if they would be very easy to pull apart.  That's why it's soooooo important to make wrapped connections.

That. Is. So. Hot. Right. Now.

I want to learn how to do this.

Here's a link for one you don't even need a clasp for.  You also can use shoelaces, ribbons, yarn, etc to make them, weave them as wide as you want, and then either lace them, or add a real clasp or make a clasp of your own with another tab.

This should get you started.

what's the name of the shrinkie dinks you used? the kind i get you have to use perminant markers

Squirrel Art Brand is the absolute best.  It really is artist grade, you can color with virtually ANYthing, and it shrinks uniformly.  Just one remembrance about ANY shrink plastic...it shrinks differently lengthwise than it does widthwise.  So if you are making duplicates of things, like earrings, make sure that you orient both designs the same way...otherwise you'll have one longer and one wider.

Good start.  With practice everyday it gets easier and easier, and your work gets more consistent. 

I have only one comment about the wire...it looks very, very thin...maybe 20 gauge??  That just won't hold up for bracelets and necklaces in the long run.  Even with forging and tumbling, the components just won't stay in shape.

Looks like you enjoyed Linda Jones' books???

Carry on..good job.

I just saw a charm bracelet SOMEwhere made of these pennies.  Now where was it??? One of the magazines, I think.

What kind of beads are you talking about?  I don't know of any but polymer clay that can me made in an oven/toaster oven.

Lampwork beads require glass, fire, kiln, etc.
