  • K H commented on the Design “Copper Wire Ear Rings”   2 years, 5 months ago

    Love the texture on the Greek keys. Btw, if you heat copper wire it becomes very pliable. Once the wire is shaped just lay it on the bench block and hammer to harden. I usually only use the 22 g to make headpins for fwp.

  • K H commented on the Design “Jasper and Copper”   2 years, 5 months ago

    Love them both…the pearls for dressier occasions and the jasper for casual. This design would look great with a one shouldered dress or top…the stones on one side would balance the fabric on the other.

  • K H commented on the Design “Help with the Doggie Dangle”   2 years, 6 months ago

    You could use wire to chain the chips together, and hang like three strands of chains from each link in the knitted chain. Or you could string all of the chips on a fine wire and crochet the wire, slipping a chip into the mesh every few stitches. This would probably end up with an element [...]

  • K H commented on the Design “Opinion Please”   2 years, 6 months ago

    Oh yeah, that’s the one! It’s perfect, so don’t mess with perfection

    You may not be able to find those exact pearls, but maybe coin pearls or cornflake pearls. This design is just too special to not have a sister.

    I like #3, but I know a lot of people who couldn’t process a design with that much “asym”. My vote is to get more of those pearl drops and make one of each. I would most definitely wear this!

  • K H commented on the Design “Real Steel”   2 years, 6 months ago

    I had a roll of this wire tucked away, and you inspired me to dig it out and play with it. So far I have made several fleur-de-lis headpins.

  • K H commented on the Design “”Salvage Operation””   2 years, 7 months ago

    OMG, this design is PERFECT! Like the happiest accident ever!

  • K H commented on the Design “Yay or Nay?”   2 years, 7 months ago

    It’s a block of metal…mine is a 4×4 piece of hard steel that cost about $15…available at bead and craft supply shops. Serves 2 purposes…a hard surface to pound against so you can get nice pieces of flattened or hardened wire, AND it protects you tabletop from the hammer.

    It’s easy to spend a fortune on tools. [...]

    Great wirework!!!!! I am pretty much self taught from web surfing. I have several pairs of pliers, a bench block and hammer and my hands.

  • K H commented on the Fresh Pick “Goodbye, “Daydream Believer”   2 years, 7 months ago

    Even though I was Micky’s girl, I know that Davey was the star of the group. I still have some of their vintage vinyl.

  • K H commented on the Fresh Pick “Flying Hamburger”   2 years, 7 months ago

    Eka, do you remember the Del Taco flying saucer on Grand between SLU and Highway 40?
