"Super Sixy"


About this design:

I was playing around with wire shapes and instead of going with a circle...I went for the number six shape. I attached to the bottom a 1/4 inch piece of 6 gauge wire I was experimenting on, and did a 2 second dip in liver of sulfur. I used a shiny copper wire to wrap some tiny garnet rounds... and voila! Super Sixy!

Components:

14 Gauge copper wire, 6 gauge copper wire, 24 gauge shiny copper wire, 4mm garnet rounds. ( earwire is 20 gauge copper)

    This is really a great design. I love the wire work and the garnets mixed with the copper.

    Yes, I soldered the six closed with some copper solder from Cindy Moore ( Cooltoolchick.com), and the 6 gauge wire was a find from Lowes. ( in the electrician section). Thanks for your positive comments!
