It was 18 gauge wire. That's what was written in the instructions on page 1 of this topic so that's why I used it. Are other people using thicker wire? That would explain why theirs are straighter. I will certainly try a thicker one next time.

I think I know what your problem is. Where exactly did you buy your wire from? If your proght it from like walmart or even micheals, I think they only sell 'soft' wire. Soft wire bend very easily and I don't think they shoul be used in a project like this. I reallu don't know where to ge any 'harder' wire from (besides online) but I have been looking very  hard from some. I am going to try some memory wire soon though. I am going to see how that works out. When I play with the wire, I can't bend it at all with my hands Smiley

Yes it was from good old Michael's. It was my first wire project so I really don't know anything about different types of wire yet. I guess a harder wire would make sense because you need to bend it a little but not very much. I'm not ready to invest in a lot of wire yet but I will keep that in mind for later. thanks.

Heavens! You're one dedicated person!

preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze') post a pic? I'd love to see your work.

Here's one I whipped up this morning. It's kindof hard to tell from the pics, but there is a mood bead (changes colors) in the center that appears "suspended", b/c I placed it perpendicular to the others. I tried to surround it with the tiny wooden seed beads so that the other beads (multiple colored glass ones on either side) so it wouldn't detract from the focal (mood) bead.

What do you think?

Take care of that blister!!

~CD~

p.s. Maybe it would be a good idea to get some higher guage (thinner) wire that that with which you're currently working?

yours are awesome! i was planning to go to michaels to get some thinner wire...i started to unwrap the wire/beads from the bracelet because it is so thick, i cant bend it to put on my wrist!!! ill take a pic of what is left (about half is still on) plus im going to get different beads. but when my dad comes home from work (he has the camera in his car) ill take a pic!

i bought the frames a month ago and still hadn't thought of what to put on it, here in my country they usually use shiny glassbeads, and i don't wanna use that bcoz it seems so mainstream already... but tnx to ur post it inspired me of what to use...

<<<edited to remove images from quote - please remember to delete IMGs when quoting ~ thanks!>>>

sorry for the crappy pics... i used a cameraphone.
i sold it for only $5... (yupz, quite cheap bcoz the dollar rate here is high)  but if im going to use swarovski stones it might cost around $30-40, even $60.


does anyone know where i can get those bracelet blanks?  i've looked all over and can't find anything online.  maybe i'm not typing in the right thing in the search box.  i just do "bracelet blanks".
