So I've been fooling around with the craft wire and some beads. I think I might be sliiiiightly addicted. Just what I need: another craft I can't put down!

It's really hard to get a decent picture of jewelry. All of my silver wire looks slightly pink, but it's really not.






















Any comments are appreciated!

your bracelet is very lovely and I love the blue earrings(fourth pair) even if the wire is strange colors in the pictures

Those are really pretty. I especially like the pop tab earrings...Oh, and I use my flatbed scanner to "take pictures" of my jewelry (I guess I'm not actually taking pictures, I'm just scanning it, but it seems to get better details and it doesn't end up all fuzzy, like the pics with my digi cam do).

I love the color of the blue wire...I have to ask, did you have a problem with the color scratching off? It doesn't look like your work is scratched...maybe you're more careful, or maybe I just have some cheap wire  Undecided

Looks good, though! Much better than my first try.

Crafting IS addicting...

Great job! I like the pop tab earrings idea. I may have to try this.

Again proving the poor quality of my photos, the wire is green. The first time I used it it started to scratch off, but the lopper color worked with the beads. You can't tell from the picture, but the bracelet with green wire has green beads with gold and red on them. The second time I used it I was super careful to just squeeze it hard enough to bend, Any harder and it screws up.

To get a better picture - use natural light and not a flash, and take you picture from at least 3 feet away, using the highest resolution you have (to get it in focus) - you can then zoom and crop on your pc.
