my fingers hurt SO much from making this stuff.  I sliced my middle finger open a couple of times and even though I've showered 3 times since then and washed my hands at least 20 times, I still have two grey marks (I used smoke FireLine for my stringing material).  but I opened up the first knuckle on my ring finger pretty good.  it freaking HURTS!  Sad  but it was all worth it.



if the bracelet (which closes with 3 snaps) looks a little wonky, it's because I used Ming Tree rounds which aren't uniform in size or shape.  but I like it.  it gives it some texture.

Cute and a very interesting design! I'm in love with the wonkiness of the bracelet! It gives it character and visual appeal.

That necklace is just amazing!
Is the wire you used hard or soft? Did you make circles with a string of beads and fasten them or are they woven? I can't stop looking at them, they are really lovely.

sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.  I've been sulking...

but anyway, thank you!  I just used beading wire to make the circles and used crimp beads and crimp bead covers to close them.  nothing fancy and something that was was sure wouldn't just fall apart after a short time.
