What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that this wire was once carrying electricity through the walls of an old house. Now, it's something pretty.

I love this. Thought it was a hair holder like we used to wear in the '70's. I am new to wire, but am now working exclusively in recycled wire. I am using bailing wire and electrical wire. Have even found some brass coated copper that is very interesting when hammered. Any suggestions on an easy way to remove the plastic sheathing from the wire? Thanks for the inspiration. Think I will make a hair holder.
