    Love your wire working. Have been wanting to try it myself lately. You make it look so easy and uniformed. Great choice of stones too. Thanks for sharing it. It was just the nudge I needed to try it at least. Smile.

    I love both necklaces the blue is my favorite. Did you use a wigjig or are you that talented that you can make perfect links. If you are that perfect can you give us a class! Great JOb!

    thanks, ladies!

    no wigjig — the key is to cut the wire the same length and use the same part of your pliers to do the loops. For these, the wire was about 2 1/2 inches long, and I used the tip for the smaller loops and did the larger loop about 1/2 way down the pliers. I hammered to harden the loops. and it’s just fun to practice!

    funny, I was making beaded necklaces is front of the tv the week I was home sick. I couldn’t bare to sit at my beading table so I sat on the couch making tons and tons of them. I sure did get better at eyeballing the length of the wire after a few hours of it lol.
