three of my favorite things


About this design:

Gun metal 28 gauge wire, wrapped with Turquoise, Pyrite, and Tiger's Eye...my favorite stone combo. I got these lovey 3mm Turquoise beads from Lima Beads (Thank You very much!) I have been practicing my bum off and I am proud to say that I LOVE to wire wrap, and I didn't have a frustrating moment with this:) I love using the 28 gauge wire....You would laugh if you knew what I was doing before! ( using head pins and cutting off the flat or round ends) what a waste!! Thank Goodness for my beading village!!

Components:

Gun Metal 28 gauge wire, Turquoise, Tiger's Eye, Pyrite, all 3mm. Lobster Clasp

    Very dainty,and I like the stone combination.
    Lol about the cutting of the head pins. I was Using 3″ SS pins,when learing how to wrap a brio. Think I wasted about a million dollars.. ;)
