and I've vastly underestimated the work! *rub sore fingers* I was so afraid that pliers would mar the wire because I knew I would have use a death grip  Tongue , so I did most of the thing with my fingers.  And that long piece of thin wire kept trying to poke my face (don't worry, I wear my glasses when I craft  Cool )

Thanks for looking, and any feedback will be appreciated!

^_________^ Thank you everyone for the compliments!

Jozi: I think it's the bunch of flowers that reminded me of the era when all the ladies' stuff  (jewelry, clothes etc) were super-feminine. Too bad I couldn't find wire with an 'antique' look, like the darkened brass/bronze colored ones. I've only seen that material in findings like headpins Sad

that is lovely!
i ADORE the flowers!
so antique chic!

after several incidents of me bleeding/crying because i too was afraid of marking the wire with pliers and instead used my hands, the boyfriend made me some customized pliers, covered with a thin layer of neoprene... it works great! and it took two minutes / cost 2$ to do!
i reccomend you try it, although I'm still thinking asking Santa for a professional pair of pliers next Xmas  Wink
