    Thanks so much ladies. I was just fooling around sort of bending the wire, and I liked how it looked. I was surprised that I could make a second one that was almost identical…LOL

    14g, wow, that’s pretty thick bending!! I have decided that this wire stuff is going to be my OUTSIDE jewelry project. Less items to take outside and work and I can pound away much easier than in the house.
