Hey everyone, I'll have to post a link to the picture cause I'm a newbie Undecided


I'm pretty proud of this design but I have a question for anyone who uses wire: what do you think is the easiest way to make a hammered circle of wire? This might sound simple but I really had to mess with them a lot to get them to be just right. What do you like to bend/wrap the wire around? Comments/answers/criticism always appreciated.

those are beautiful! how did you form yours? I have seen wire hammered around a bracelet/ring form to make circles, though they were hammered flat, not square.

thanks for the compliments!  Grin

to reply to ragdoll, i made these by bending wire around a sharpie and then hammering it it make it flat. a ring or bracelet form sounds like a good idea. thanks for the suggestion!

no problem, they seemed much bigger than a sharpie, or do you mean one of the giant ones?
