My learning...


About this design:

The work of designer from Bead Style magazine...

Components:

Copper wire 20 gauge and 26 gauge. faceted rock Crystal. Well the piece (shown) should consist of 4 parts and so it was, but... it broke because I did a bo-bo and it is a very gentle piece so I try to fixed by another wrapping. I hammered too hard and in the wrong place and instead of hardening it became very breakable in the places of crossing of the wire... The lesson learned but what do you think of the work in general? It also should have acrylic and glass flowers where the wrapping goes :)

    Very pretty. Yes, we all hammer too much sometimes.

    Nice design…I have never been into wire wrapping that much and admire those who do.

    I love the scrolls and crystals! With a little practice you will master this technique. I agree with Del, sometimes we can get carried away with the hammering–who doesn’t get over zealous with it sometimes?! :)
