no jewelry... I've been on a knitting kick. But finally got some new stuff done! Just in time for Christmas since none of the yarn stuff I've been working on could possibly be done in time, unless I make everybody LaPush crocheted hats! Anyway...
This is a bangle done on 16g wire, flexy enough so you can adjust the fit but holds its shape.

This chainish bracelet features the largest piece of seaglass I've ever found. I love this one.

And the necklace with assorted shells & stones & stuff, the toggle is the worn-out center of a spiral shell.

So there it is. Back to the knitting now, I'm pretty much out of 24g wire!

Very nice pieces.  I really like the last one.  It looks very earthy.

nice work.  I like them all.  The first on 16 g looks like a great way to have the bracelet and clasp like an all in one piece.  I will try this.  One think with wire that troubles me is getting the ends smooth.  any tips.  thanks.

I didn't worry about smoothing the ends of the wire, I just made sure they were coiled/positioned out of the way. If you're going to buy beads for something like this, I highly recommend taking a piece of the wire you're going to use with you to the bead store to "test" the holes. You'd be surprised how many beads WON'T fit on 16g wire!
