BOW Week 4

We did a lot of clasps and connectors for Week 4 Bead on a Wire Workshop. I liked doing these better than the double coiled beads, though the single coiled beads didn't bother me as much. I made a pair of Valentine Earrings with the heart connectors. Most of these were done with 18 gauge copper wire. 16 gauge was recommended for some things, but I don't have any--I am going to try to track some down this week. I found some larger glass beads at Michael's and Hobby Lobby for 50% off last week, so I am looking forward to incorporating them into these projects, as most of my bead stash is seed beads from a previous life. I was sick this week, so didn't get much else done.
