    Very pretty,and cheerful. I think blue looks nice with copper. Your wire looks like heavy gauge. How do you get such perfect wraps,using heavy gauge wire? I know copper is soft,but I find it hard to manage.
    Ps. Don’t you just ADORE blue flowers? They’re so rare and special! :)

    Hi Nancy…these were not heavy…22 gauge ballpins which you can find at Fire Mountain Gems. Very pliable and easy to work with. Thanks for your kind comments as always.

    SO pretty! I have to admit I’m not usually a “blue” person, but this design is an exception! Such a lovely combination of blues and copper.
