I made two rings tonight!

I didn't have any small beads handy, so I decided to use up some glass beads with which I was going to make earrings, but it turned out the giant box o' beads I bought had very, very few pairs that matched! Sad So I made quite a few earrings without partners (maybe wearing mismatched earrings will catch on... hmm), then decided to try my hand at a variation of this ring:

Those are super cute! I tried making those a while ago, but they didn't look this good. What gage wire did you use?

Thanks!  It's 20g wire, I believe (though I'm actually not sure since I found it at the bottom of a box of old stuff and I don't have a gauge!) it was the only wire I had, and I think it actually turned out better than 14-gauge; it was easier to wrap around itself without my hands cramping up, and it doesn't look completely messed up where the wrapping was uneven, since I made the rings at roughly 1 AM Wink
