    Wow! Inspiring!
    I have a smallish amethyst briolette that needs a little “pumping up”. This just might be the treatment it needs. Looks like I’ll be “playing” this weekend.

    Elaine, would you mind sharing how you add in the “cascading” wires at the neck?
    Thanks ♥

    Jeanne, all I did was cut the wire longer than usual and, because there are six wires coming out of the top, after you make and wrap the bail, you’ll still have four wires that you can play around with. Check out this video…this really helped me! http://www.tumbleweedglass.com/cab.html

    Fabulous! How do you get the beads to stay put, or do you just let them float around?

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Moonbell, if you mean the crystals…they just float around but they won’t fall off the end because of the little curly cues at the end of each wire! :-D
