    I love the spiraled, hammered ends AND also how you chose to put your beads in vertical columns. Plus, what’s NOT to like about the ‘color loaded’ look! Very pretty :)

    Color loaded is right! I love color. Can’t believe this was your first attempt. It’s very cool. I’m impressed with the swirly whirlies on the end.
    Were you holding your breath,when you were wrapping the wire? LOL. I do that all the time,as if it’s a big “to do.” Just don’t like starting all over again. ;)

    Oh My, to hear that is music to my ears.Thank-you thank-you!! I made one more and gave it to my sister inlaw for her 60th b-day. She was pleased and everyone at the party thought is was beautiful. I should of taken a picture of the second one, but I bought more wire so will be making more. :)
