... not me! My necklace Wink. I love that it is 'free-form', not too neat and tidy - so perhaps it is like me after all!!



I made this at a class, we made a 'nest' shape by going round and round a rod with the wire and then weaved it back and forth at the back. Then thread on and attach the beads that go in the nest, I also have little red ones that are hard to see right in the middle. Then hammering - yay. First we made petal shapes, hammered them flat with little craft hammer on a metal or marble block. Attached those and made spirals by hammering a bit of wire and then spiralling it around a thin rod like a paint brush. Leave some of the wire normal (not hammered) and use that to attach to the piece. Add a dangly bit if it works, add more spirals and petals as needed. You can even add beads to the end of the spiral, just leave that bit not hammered so you can thread the bead.

Thank, I like the copper wire too, and will use it again lots! And Ally-oops, I love the description whimsical, I will keep that in my head next time I create to see if I can emote that again.
