so for the last couple of summers i've gone down to the outerbanks for a week with my bestie. while there i found some beautiful pieces of sea glass and i've dying to make something with them. the most logical choice would be to wite-wrap them...the only problem is that i seem to be hopless when it comes to wrapping. i have all the tools, but is there purhaps a really good tute out there that i could watch that would give me some better techniques? and what kind of wire should i be using? i think part of the problem may be that my wire guage is to thick... i would really appriciate any help/tips you experianced crafters out there could give me! thanks!!

It's best to use a fairly thin gauge of wire--I wouldn't use anything larger than 20.

Are you going to make something out of them or just wrap them for decoration purposes?
