What are you most proud of? this is the first time I have wire wrapped semi precious stones - I am quite happy with the result but will use more seed beads next time

Thank you Aga. I am so enjoying the course

These are lovely. I like the proportion of seed beads to wire - a bit more wire with a few bead sprinkled in. It looks like you started with a regular top wrapped bead and then added the wire/beads on top of that. Is that right?

thanks Glass Girl - that is exactly what I did. This was my first attempt at adding beads to the wrap and I need more practice, but quite like the result.

Beautiful. You have a very delicate touch which IMHO makes these very wearable - you don't have to wait for a special occasion and can enjoy them more often! I liked your wrapped sea glass too.
