About this design:

I curved the brass paisley blanks with a dapping block then wire-wrapped the Czech beads with colored wire. 2 in teal, 2 in purple, 1 in bright brass.


Parawire and artistic wire from LB. Paisleys from my stash.

    Chic and funky comes to mind. Nice work Julie. I’m in LOVE with the blue. The contrast of the bright colors against the darker metal is striking.

    Hi everyone. THANKS so much for the feedback! I thought they looked fun and cute with the different color wire, but wasn’t sure what everyone else would think. I have more dangly things in my stash… so I’ll try more pieces with the colored wire.
    btw: PARAWIRE is SO awesome!!! Buy it!!! :)
