Your squeeze clearly has an eye for design, I especially like the second one. The pendant piece in the third one is too thick for my liking, but other than that I think they're great.

How much wire (approx) in length goes into each one?

the length of wire depends on the intricate-ness of the wire working....for example the coils (fatty spiral looking stuff) entails wrapping some skinnier wire around some thicker wire........he says he doesn't really measure. he just kinda starts with a bunch of wire and goes from there.  i would assume its kinda like when doing cross stitch or embroidery.....you want to have too much than too little....does that make sense?  Huh

thanks for the love!
