    Carrie Rachel (do you use both names? – just curious) For briolettes I have found that 24 gauge is the magic size sometimes you can use 22 ga but if the briolettes are delicate you will break off the tip (I found this out the hard way) I use Half hard wire when wrapping my briolettes

    Since all of you girls have been so helpful, here’s a question for you. I’m going to finally try my hand at wire wrapping & making earrings. I have to buy some wire, does anybody have any suggestions on what gauge or kind to use? I’ve seen dead soft, half hard, fine, & I have no idea which one to use. The first thing I’m going to try is wire wrapping briolettes, if that makes any difference. Any help would be appreciated! :)

    Thanks Lynn! I asked a girl that I buy supplies from on Etsy, YadanaBeads

    I bought the faceted black onyx briolettes & faceted oval beads that I used on my necklace from her & they’re amazing quality! I’ve loved everything I’ve gotten from her. She’s getting me an 8 inch strand for $6.50.

    Hi, Carrie!

    Just checked my stash and I don’t have any of that type. Sorry! :-( Have you tried,, or If they all have them and the price is comparable, Goody Beads gets them to me in 2 days with regular shipping. :D

    I’m looking for black onyx smooth oval beads, 13x18mm or larger. Does anywhere know where you might be able to get these? They don’t have them on Lima Beads, and I’ve checked Etsy, Fire Mountain Gems, and Rings & Things. Or does anyone has some extra that they would like to sell???

    I thought you and Lynn might be geographically close! At least compared to the distance from Texas to Ohio. LOL

    Hi, Carrie!

    I love your Etsy shop! You’ve done a great job setting it up. I even marked it as a ”favorite.” ;-)

    I was born in Akron and grew up in Indiana, which is where I live now. Where did you live before moving to Ohio?

    Bead Happy!
