Well, the purple wire I had just purchased for another project I do that's non-jewelry related, so it happened to be in my trunk...I tried this at work, and I'm glad I had it! I love it too. I'm hoping to try other colors out soon.
Thanks for the nice comments!
I like the earrings too, even though I don't wear any.

This is my first project with wire and beads, and I am hooked. It's so fun to play with the shapes you can make with wire.
One problem I had - when working with the thicker wire for the frame of the bracelet I found it very difficult to keep it straight and in a perfect curve. While I was wrapping the thinner wire I kept bending the thicker one by accident. So you can see my bracelet is a little wobbly. Does anyone have any tips on keeping the wire straight and even??

Anyways, here's my bracelet:

It doesn't look as if you're using thick enough wire for the frame.  It's really important to use a 14 or 16 gauge wire.  Do you know what gauge you're using?

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.
