Aw, thanks KerrieRou! So sweet of you to say. Wink

Waaaaay back, years and years ago when I started making Trees, I used this tutorial to get me started: http://www.beadstudio.com/info.php?a=613 There are tons of additional ones out there though and different techniques to making them, so check out things like YouTube and such as well.

Keep in mind that any tutorial is going to just be a starting point. You really need to take the idea and learn and apply your own technique. It took me many attempts to get them the way I liked and with the refinement I have now. It's just years of practice. So don't get discouraged if your first attempts aren't great. Mine weren't either. Cheesy

As for wire, I started with cheap craft wire I found at Micheal's and that's good for practice, but a good brand is Artistic Wire. It's good for a wide variety of wire wrapping techniques and comes in a wide variety of colors.
