Thank you for the tutorial,  I was just wondering if you or anyone else has a suggestion for what to use if you do not have a block anvil.  I have been wanting to try some wire-work of late but do not have an anvil

Thanks again for the compliments, guys!

jungrrl: This project, including the tutorial, took me a total of three days- the project itself wouldn't have taken more than an afternoon, but this was my first tute- the photography, and the just-plain-figuring-out how to write out each step, were the things that made it so time-consuming! (I tend to be a do-er, not a writer, so much...)  Wink

EKO: Hmm. I'm thinking that one thing that you could use, in place of an anvil, would be just a thick scrap of flat steel- these can be grabbed from behind any shop that does welding, generally- another good place to look would be in the scrap bin behind an automotive or heavy equipment shop. If you didn't want to go that route, and didn't mind having texture to your piece, you *could* try doing your hammering (very lightly, mind you) on a smooth concrete surface- but you will not be able to avoid getting that rougher texture. However, if you do look for an anvil, Ebay's a great resource! I got mine off of there, for under $10- and it's been one of the best things I've EVER bought, for crafting!

Thanks again for lookin', folks!  Grin

I'm totally linking this to my sister.  She really wants to start making jewlery.  And this is sooo thorough. Well done on the tute!  And the necklace too!

This is absolutely beautiful! I wish my lines in the wires came out looking like yours. I guess I'm just going to have to work harder at this. Thanks for the great tutorial!
