    Thank you so much girls. WWS, yes I did use the 24 gauge copper. Wanda I have been beading for 14 months, but I started buying beads a few months before, most of them are from Lima. Sonja, don’t spent money on classes, due to my hectic work I learned everything from YT and blogs. Monica they do look great on.
