What are you most proud of? The results! I am still perfecting my skill on this technique, but I think I am doing it pretty well, considering that it is only my 2nd project with open swirls... or swirls of any kind!

You're doing a lovely job! It doesn't look as if you've hammered your wire, though, so I'm wondering -- did you harden it in some other way? (I do a little wirework, too, so I'm curious!)

That piece was not hammered; I just got my bench block and hammer the other day.

Great way to ease up heavy beads!

I absolutely love how simple yet elegant this is. What was the length of your wires? I'm sure it differs depending on the bead size. It's beautiful!
