Ok as promised here are the goods from djsemira. She sent me a beautiful set in my favourite colour green
 frst of all a group shot

and a close up of the detail - the design is of coral - I loved sea themed things Cheesy

and action shots of the ring, necklace and earrings- I'm going to wear 'em all to a party later, so pleased they arrived today - new jewels woo hoo!

What great work huh?
Semira Thank  you so much - I am praying to the postal gods for your parcel from me to arrive soon x

i'm glad you like the set sewphie!! 

pretty green vines works well with this colour combo talyra!!  when i make other colours it makes sense to go with the coral design..

Thanks, Ronda! I have already forgotten what the stone that I wrapped was. I wrapped it with German Silver wire. It might not stay that shiny, something I read somewhere said it patinas. I think it was 20 Ga. I am still not confident enough with wire wrapping to go in for the sterling silver wire.  Undecided Someday I should just take a class.

I meant the stone was shiny, LOL! so is the silver too, though!  Wink

If you are going to take a class in wire wrapping I would say you ought to take an advanced course or you may intimidate your classmates! You really do an excellent job, I have always thought so.

I got some nylon coated colored wire in a variety of gauges to practice wrapping with - and while I am getting better you certainly outdo me! I think that silver is a lot easier to work with though, so maybe I ought to stop trying to use the nylon coated stuff...

Great assortment of pieces - it shows a lot of versatility!
