    Thank you so much everyone! :-D You make me smile.

    Skittles Mommy, I did not take classes. Over time I gathered tips and advice from various sources (many here at LB) and just started playing with wire.
    Just jump in and try it. Start with artistic wire or copper and then the cost is not so much if something doesn’t work the way you planned. I’m still scared to try this with Sterling silver. :| Gonna’ have to make that leap sooner or later…..sigh……
