    Thank you all for the complements. Sophiebug I don’t try to see the holes when I’m working with them. I simply know they will land flat on the side of the bead that has the hole, and that will leave the hole facing up and I press the wire down on the bead and it tips [...]

    Good, I am glad it is helpful. remember to not over twist the square wire or it will work harden and require annealing. If you can anneal it you can create a very pronounced twist, do that by doing the first 50-60 turns, anneal, then do another 50-60 turns. The second batch of turns is to [...]

    RockyD, just saw your note…the leaves are from Lima–#42368–but they are out of stock right now.

    no, each step really is simple. there are only so many ways one can bend wire. It is how these simple steps are combined- the actual design that can be complex, but there is nothing difficult in coiling a small copper wire around another one, then wrapping that around another…

    Sophiebug if you need advice or encouragement [...]

    Beautiful! Love the gradated pearls inside the spiral. Such a nice touch.

    The best things grow from mud, including your designs.

  • wellsdalakaJulie commented on the Fresh Pick “Chili Peppers”   1 hour, 49 minutes ago

    Just got back from New Mexico, including a cooking class. Now I can make my own souvenir!

  • wellsdalakaJulie commented on the Fresh Pick “Spring Break”   1 hour, 50 minutes ago

    This takes me to a beautiful WARM beach – a fun mental break. Thanks.

    Were did the leaves come from. If you don’t mind me asking?

  • Sophiebug commented on the Design “whirlpool”   3 hours, 1 minute ago

    More “ooh” and “ahh”! Forget about finding needles to accommodate those seed beads-my eyes would not be able to accommodate them. Even with really good lighting

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Beaded Hairpins”   3 hours, 2 minutes ago

    Nice idea. Really like the ones with the red pearls–they have a oriental touch to them.

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Easy Does It”   3 hours, 6 minutes ago

    Sometimes simplicity has a lot to say! You could create a hold variety of pieces, each with it’s own personality. Nice idea

  • Sophiebug commented on the Design “Spiral Dance”   3 hours, 6 minutes ago

    Again, just wow! I’m going to try the spiral-love the look of it!

  • Sophiebug commented on the Design “odalisque”   3 hours, 9 minutes ago

    Wow, this is so gorgeously intricate. And there’s no earthly way I could ever come close to copying this! I’m in the very beginning stages of wire wrapping-mostly in the “get really frustrated and tear it all apart” stage. Thankfully, I’m using inexpensive craft wire. Your wire work does inspire me to keep trying!

    This is beautiful, especially the PC focal. Love the colors!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Finally”   3 hours, 28 minutes ago

    I just love that you made so many of the components. I especially like all the dangles with the balled head pins. They look great with the dandelion motif on the focal. I truly appreciate all your new ventures in jewelry making.

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “odalisque”   3 hours, 36 minutes ago

    Robert, you are so funny, I’m chuckling now…surely not simple. Beautiful design with such intricate details. Such elegance and sophistication. Completely amazing!
