1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Cheap Sources for Wire on: November 20, 2005 02:03:46 PM
I've been practicing my wire work with craft wire for a while and finally bought some sterling silver wire from Fire Mountain.  I LOVE it.  It is so easy to work with and is really pretty.  But, it's a bit pricey.  I think it was about $10.50 for 5 ft of 20 guage half hard wire.

Any suggestions on where I can get some cheap sterling silver wire?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Itchy Sweaters on: November 18, 2005 07:56:56 AM
I'm not a knitter but thougt that maybe some of you could help.  I researched it but couldn't find an answer....

I bought a couple of new sweaters.  They're pretty lightweight and soft but are totally itchy after about 20 minutes.  It's a blend a few different things but I suspect it's either the wool or mohair that cause the itchiness.  I think it's only 10% wool and 8% mohair. 

Is there anything at all that I can do to make this sweater less itchy?  Help!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Jigs - WigJig vs. Wild Wire on: October 20, 2005 07:02:54 AM
I've been looking at jigs online and wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction. 

I've been using a Wild Wire brand jig.  It's plastic but seems to do the trick for simple earrings and basic wireworking.  I've been looking at buying a WigJig because they seem to have different shapes, sizes, etc.  Also the WigJigs look sturdier because they have metal pegs.  But, they are also considerably more expensive.

I was looking at the WigJig Delphi because it seems to be smaller than the standard jig.  WigJig's standard jig is called the Olympus.  I think this is similar to the Wild Wire jig but I'm not sure.  I don't want to buy the Delphi if it's basically the same thing as my cheap-o Wild Wire jig.

Does anyone have any hints, tips, advice, or suggestions?
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Jewelry for Men? on: October 18, 2005 02:24:17 PM
My husband asked me last night why I never make anything for him.  And I replied "Um....because you're a man."  He says there is probably something I can make for him that's "manly".

Any suggestions?
