I have wrapped a cat eye cab with pure sterling silver wire. This is by far the smallest thing I have ever wrapped with the end result being 1 3/4 inches tall by a little over 3/4 of an inch wide. I thought I would never get an end result to look relatively neat. I have to give credit to this tute on a rock tumbling site. http://andy321.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=wwp&action=display&thread=26661

So what do you guys think?

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

I'm sure you could, it just wouldn't be immediate. Plus I have still not perfected it yet. I have been doing this for a little over a year now and this is where I am with it. You just have to have the right kind of wire and lots of patience.
