My learning...

The work of designer from Bead Style magazine...
Components: Copper wire 20 gauge and 26 gauge. faceted rock Crystal. Well the piece (shown) should consist of 4 parts and so it was, but... it broke because I did a bo-bo and it is a very gentle piece so I try to fixed by another wrapping. I hammered too hard and in the wrong place and instead of hardening it became very breakable in the places of crossing of the wire... The lesson learned but what do you think of the work in general? It also should have acrylic and glass flowers where the wrapping goes :)
