    Dora, this is a super bracelet. The loops are just about perfect!!! I saw it the other day, but didn‘t have time to stop and write a comment. (That’s what happens when you surf while listing to music on hold – darn it, they pick up the call just when you get interested in something. Cest’ la vie.)

    Irina, Home Depot has the best wire. It is located in the electrical department on a big machine that looks like a ferris wheel. Tell the clerk that you want bare copper electrical wire and he will cut it for you and write up a ticket to take to the checkout. The wire is sold by the foot. Some of the wire is sold with several strands twisted together (14G comes with 6 strands and 12G comes with 7 strands. Just the strands apart as you use them. The really fat wire is sold in single strands. Don ‘t try to cut that with your good wire cutters, get a cheap pair from the floral supply department at Walmart or Dollar Tree. Fat wire may also need to be warmed to soften it before you start bending it.

    My husband is adding rooms in our attic, and using lots of wire. I use the scraps. When I was in a jewelry store in Italy the cameo artist noticed my earrings and bracelet. Love to use free stuff.
