About this design:

My new favorite design!
The lampwork beads came from Lynn (ChickyLE) in the beadswap! I found the design in last year's "Best of Step by Step Wire Jewelry"
I modified wire gauges to use what I had on hand.

Components:

14ga and 26ga copper wire, copper spacers, lampwork beads, sore fingers!

    Thanks Lorrie!
    I think I’ll make more of these before finishing my cuff – I like instant gratification LOL
    (These work up so much faster for me than the cuff, for some reason)

    Didn’t you find wrapping the 26ga wire a bit tedious? I’ve done some wire around wire but I took the easy way out and used 22ga. I can see it better. :D Love, love, love the design, color and everything!

    Thank you Debra, Martha, Nancy and Lynn!
    Nancy, I didn’t have too much trouble with the 26ga. It wraps so easily, but there are a lot of wraps. I had to use what I had on hand at the time. I would like to get some thicker wire though.

    I’m so glad you saw this, Lynn! Hope it put a smile on your face.
