So. I'd tried "wire wrapping" (properly) before, no good.  On a short-ish (1 hour 10 minutes?) drive to Claxton, GA.. I took apart a necklace I'd made with goldfilled wire and beads.. and re-strung the beads onto some peach colored thread.  I had a few beads that didn't make their way down the needle (hole's too small) and leftover wire. HMMM.  (I guess this -could- be reconstructed, but not technically; since I made both pieces?)

Anywho.  I made a ring out of remaining beads and wire; and LOVE it.  It fits me perfectly (size 3, tiny tiny fingers!) and it was just so cute and wonderful.


It's not as fancy-shmancy as some I've seen; but I like how it's rustic or.. earthy looking; especially the "band", it's not solid, but curvy and braidy lookin'.

Sooo, I liked that one so much, I thought I'd make a few more (varrying in sizes from 6-9; a little tougher because none of my fingers were that big; so I had to hold on to the wire pretty tightly) **these were not made in the moving vehicle, just the first one** lol.

'n' yes, the pearls are supposed to be kinda scratchy (rustic! rustic!) I'm not so much fancy.

annnnd... ACTION!







I like 'em a lot Smiley Whattaya think?

Thanks for looking! :*

Those are really pretty!  I bought the supplies to try my hand at it, but I haven't done anything with it yet.  Yours look great!
