What are you most proud of? I am most proud of finishing projects that I once thought may have been too difficult (or that I had no experience with) to completion. There is a big pleasure in starting with nothing and not knowing what direction you are headed and the piece almost completes itself through drive and determination and love of the creative process. So, I never know exactly what I'm creating until it's finished and then I step back and feel very proud that I had that piece deep in my imagination the whole time.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have the right tools for the job. Safety is very important! Wear safety glasses and be very careful when ever attempting to chip glass. This is a must when cutting wire as well. You do not want glass or metal in your eye so wear the glasses! Also, don't take yourself too seriously when it comes to a design...it will turn out just fine in the end. If you get stuck and need help with wire wrapping techniques,for example, there is a ton of FREE instruction online. ENJOY!
