Bead on a Wire Week 5
Here are this week's projects for the Bead on a Wire workshop. We made some finished pieces this week: hoop earrings, rectangle earrings, and a link bracelet. The bracelet was made out of 18 gauge nickel silver, which I found a little stiff and hard to work with. The earrings are 20 gauge nickel silver. I did fine with the hoops, but the rectangle ones were a little tricky to get to fit right with the beads and wire coil. I did the red pair first, and had a much easier time on the second pair, the turquoise set.
