    Very cool!!! I didn’t know what to do with bubbles so that’s a shape I didn’t buy from Petra. See, Julie, you see things I don’t see! :-D

    Thanks Becky. I spent some time this evening “playing” with all the little pieces. I now have more and better ideas for some of my “un-known” pieces and I created some combos that I might not have seen earlier. I’m trying to “experiment”… :)

    Asia, the Woolywire is pretty neat! The colors and textures keep changing as you use it AND it has wire within so it BEHAVES!!! :)

    Julie,these are so pretty,and how different! I’ve never even heard of wooly wire before today. (I think) LOL ;)
    I’m glad you already answered the question of how to get it to behave. I have GOT to get some,and have some fun.
    Your creations are fab! You have such an eye for color and style.

    The WoolyWire is an expensive investment, but I only used part of a package with these earrings. It is easy to work with and is quite pretty. Each package is a little different because sometimes the yarns are thicker or thinner and the variegated colors make each piece a little different.
