I'm a new entry, this is an easy tutorial I've made to explain my little creations Smiley... I used only copper silverplated 1mm and 0.40mm, two pieces of polymer clay, glass beads and two Swarovski's cristals...



Here you can find an italian version Smiley

Ooooo, very nice!

More of Alkhymeia's work of this type can be seen from this link btw.
I especially love the black and white one, and the blue-flowers one is different from the others and also wonderful!

Since mine is your first reponse, you should know since recently, the listing of all the threads which have a photo embedded in them will show that photo next to the listing... so your thread hardly even shows up at all since it doesn't have an embedded photo!  (Also, some people won't want to click on links since they've gotten spoiled by actual photos.)

You can fix that though in just a few minutes by going out into Craftster and posting at least 10 responses (in any thread, on any board). 

Then you'll be eligible to add photos immediately (Flikr should have an url for you to add in your thread which is the regular link for that photo with an "image tag" on either side --that looks like (hmmm... guess I'll have to say it this way... left straight bracket, then the letters IMG, then right straight bracket; and after the url the same thing except with a forward slash before the letters IMG). .. just copy that new link and paste into your message (or create the image link yourself.

Oh, and do you use any jigs or other helpers to bend your wires, or do you bend them all by hand?

And do you make your holes in the clay parts for lacing through before or after baking?
