    I love the spiraled, hammered ends AND also how you chose to put your beads in vertical columns. Plus, what’s NOT to like about the ‘color loaded’ look! Very pretty :)

    Color loaded is right! I love color. Can’t believe this was your first attempt. It’s very cool. I’m impressed with the swirly whirlies on the end.
    Were you holding your breath,when you were wrapping the wire? LOL. I do that all the time,as if it’s a big “to do.” Just don’t like starting all over again. ;)
