 Cheesy Hi all!!

Booting around thru the posts here, I have come to love wire rings... and some of the other amazing trinkets/jewelry made with wire. So I decided to go and get me some of this wire and the fun stuff that goes with it too!!! (yay for Michaels)
This is my FIRST attempt at this wire thingy stuff  Tongue lol!!! And this is what it turned out to look like...............






 Cheesy

I think it's not bad for the first one!!!! hahahahahaha I think I gotta pull the wire tighter in some spots. BUT hey it don't look all that bad and it was my first!!! But I'm happy with it and me likes!!! lol
C&C welcomed...... also any helpful hints would be cool too!!
Thanks for looking!!
CHEERS!! xo

Thanks everyone!!!

MareMare... I used a 20 gauge wire. Wasn't sure what thickness to start with , so I tried with the 20ga. I still need to pull tighter on the mandrel AND around whatever I'm using in the middle (stone or button) AAAhhhhhhhh all in due time!!! hahahaha The only thing I don't own and was not sure what style/type to buy was the crimper. Michaels had a few and didn't know what size or one was right to get?!?!

Cheers!!!
