Upcyled Wire Wrapped Beads Necklace

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I got the wire wrapping with headpins right after a while! The video instructions were really helpful for me. This project gave me a ton of practice as well since I wrapped every bead cluster. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just get some materials and try it. I was surprised how well my necklace turned out since jewelry making is pretty new to me.
