About this design:

Please ignore my messy was a learning experience! That's why I am using the artistic craft wire and shell pearls. :)

    Hi Cindy..I don’t think its messy at all. I think it’s lovely and feminine. It’s a fascinating design. If that’s a rookie move for you..WOW! ;)
    Remember,.if it looks messy to your eyes,just call it organic or rustic..LOL
    It really is pretty. I’d wear it in a New York minute.The colors are wonderful.

    Whoa, Cindy – - if this is messy, I can’t think of a word to use for the wrapping that I do ! This is fantastic – - love the design and if I were good enough, I’d copy it in a minute. Thanks for sharing (and actually I do know the feeling that anything could be done a little better – - -)

    Wow! This is neat! I could see you doing all kinds of designs with it! My first thought was a whole bunch of them in varying sizes on a short necklace or small ones done in Christmas colors for earrings or as a pendant.

    PS. What messy wrap??

    Thank you for the kind words. My weaves are a little off, but I enjoyed making this. I wrapped the 20g around a nail polish bottle and the cap, just playing around. No fancy tools required, eh?

    Don’t know if I will try this with 14k GF yet..! ;)

    Agree with Nancy MC — just call it organic — although this isn’t as organic as some of mine! Wirework can be very satisfying — or sooo irritating. But this is clever, and very beautiful.

    It is beautiful. The lines are soft and flowing and the pearls add a silk feel.
