Who is this project for? Women

What materials did you use? I used 26-gauge non-tarnish antique brass wire, 3mm round faceted Jablonex Czech fire-polished glass beads in evergreen and clear crystal briolletes. For the ear wires I used 20-gauge non-tarnish antique brass wire.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's very easy to wrap the wire using 26-gauge because it is very soft. However, making the "circle" is harder than it looks because I only have a ring mandrel and I had to use that. The wire kept moving around as I wrapped around the mandrel. I would recommend to use a thick marker or anything which has a fixed shape (unlike the mandrel which is cone shaped) for beginners who do not own a mandrel or any tool.
