these are beautiful

but for the record
the only thing right about wal mart craft supplies is the price

(To The Tune of "The Llama Song")Here's a needle, there's a needle, and some yarn between the needles, cast on, knit, purl, always knitting, knitty, knitty, purl.

I know your pain.  My only source of beads and supplies is thelocal walmart and they are sadly lacking in interesting items.  What kind of wire did you use?? ((- if i may ask.  The only wire I found in the jewelry aisle at my walmart is a very slinky one -I use it to make wire drop earrings.))

Anywho - I LOVE the bracelet and the ring - they're gorgeous!

the wrap bracelet is awesome. how long did it take you to do the wrapping on that whole piece?

« Reply #8 on: September 27, 2008 07:17:02 PM »

Thanks everyone!!!! I used 22 gauge (lol, from our favourite store). I had actually bought it thinking it was the 20 gauge on the spool that they sell, so I started finding things to wrap. The inside wire is actually 18 gague FENCING wire, courtesey of the one store in a small little town I used to live in . . . works AWESOME, highly recomended for people beadshop-less. It's galvinized and is great to wrap, but also looks cool with it showing too.

How long?? Well, I've done quite a few rings like that, smaller and harder to wwork with . . the bangle took me like an hour maybe altogether. I have little dowels-thingy to make jump rings and i think I just might cheat a little bit next time, though the wrap just wouldn't be tight enough, and it wouldn't look right when you'd get to the branched off parts. But, anyway, enough yammering on!
