aw thanks for the suggestion mangosplash! but i'm in a little city in india and if there's a home depot out here, i'd like it to come out from hiding! i've looked for wires everywhere, people look at me like 'what the hell do i need that for?' like as if i just asked for drugs and/or weapons for a heist.

Have you tried a bead shop,  my local bead shop has wire in all sort of gauges.  Scrap book shops have colourful wire as well.  It is also called art wire.

I can't believe I didn't see this thread until today!  This looks like a great craftalong -- a great way to get me motivated to start making christmas gifts!

unfortunately to my extreme annoyance, my temporary city does not stock regular guages of wire. theres the really skinny stuff that pen springs are made of which just don't cut the mustard and really unflexible thick wires that just break (boo!)

Try a hardware store... that's where I got my wire!  Hardware stores always carry the stuff (even the little stores!)... OR if that doesn't work, try a fishing store!

Hmmmmmm......have you tried a fabric store?  Sometimes they have a craft section.  Not sure if they have JoAnn Fabrics in a little city in India though...

Good luck!

All of your versions are so pretty.  (I especially like the swirl necklace w/out beads, so beautiful). 

It's funny how intimidating something like this seems when you don't know how to do it.  Then when someone walks you through it's like, "Is that all?"  like it was magic or something Wink hehe. 

I've been wanting to try wire jewelry (i've just been stringing beads on a thread and ribbon).  Now I have an excuse (and a 40% off coupon!) to buy some tools and wire.   Grin
