I'm not a jewelry maker. I prefer making my lovely wire trees. I normally just make jewelry for myself and my mom.  However, I'm never one to pass up a challenge, so when a lady at the bead store I teach at showed me a necklace in a magazine and asked if I could do that, I said "I don't know, but I'll find out."  If you're interested, this necklace is inspired by the one on p. 42 of Bead and Button's 2010 Wirework magazine.  I tried to read the directions, but I'm just not good at following instructions. Tongue  I looked at all the pictures and then made it work the way I wanted.  I really like how it turned out... very elegant and organic.  Oh, and it sparkles! I'll teach this as a class this spring.



I used sea glass, glass leaves, chinese crystal bicones, tiny glass pearls, and 24 gauge wire.

craftydeb, it wasn't hard to make. I bet if you wist it, somebody would give it a try. Smiley

omg there's a tutorial for these beautiful wire rings. I really want to make them. If you like wire, you'll like the issue.

I've been trying some wire rings so far but mine aren't terribly good yet. And yeah, wire is fun. You know me and my Tree pendants! Wink

Your necklace is lovely though.

I'm not good with bigger wires, just with the really fine ones that are easy to play with. I'd be scared to make a ring.
