What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, enjoy yourself. Have fun doing what you do and if you make a mistake then laugh about it, learn from it and attempt to not do it again. But if you do then no worries, you are in good company. happy monday! :)

Nice necklace AR Grover, I have made many necklaces with wire showing in the back, most of them are 3-5 strands.

Thank you! I used crimps and a regular necklace attachment, with jump rings .. no wire showing but I also put it with my world of warcraft metal etching and it looks great. Daughter just recently gave me a large crytal her current beau gave her and am currently attempting to figure out if I am wire wraping it or going to use some clay metal. :) I really did learn a lot from your class and look back at it at times when I need to remind myself to breath and slow down. :)

I just realized what you meant a few days ago and have been a bit busy with the labor day weekend.. and yes sometimes when I use a colored wire or flex I like to let it show- whats the point of using a gold or silver or colored wire if its not going to show at some point or other :) thanks for the support too. These days I am always doing something silly and or attempting to finish the things I have started. :) see you soon
