Bead on a Wire Week 11
This week we did the wire art pin and the bead drop necklace and earrings. I fashioned my art pin from 16 gauge copper wire, and in a shape much like the example in the book for my first try to get the feel of it. I really enjoyed making the pin, and am hoping to make some more with different designs, and maybe add some beads. The bead drop jewelry was really fun too. The necklace has 16 dangles, and the earrings have 8 each. It sounded like a lot, but they really go fast. Again, I'd like to make these with some other colors eventually.
