First thoughts on wire wrapping  

Wednesday, February 7, 2007

My starter kit hasn't arrived yet, but hubby bought me from the local hardware store some tools. Last night I had a go! P loops and eye loops are better now, 8 connectors are 'almost there', but I'm still having problems with wrapped loops. And eye loops when they are on both sides of a bead. But it was only my first day so I'm patient!
I've done my first pair of earrings, which I will keep in my 'crafts museum', to go back to again and again when I want to check on my progress :-)

Since I am not posting my first earrings, here is my second pair. Still not very happy with them, but for a complete newbie at working with wire, they could have been worse :) Hope the next ones will become better and better...
I made the earwires as well, it was fun to do them.

    Wire working is interesting, yet I think I don't need another hobby now. ;) I am also interested in bead making and won't start it. :D I think you did a good job on your first/2nd piece. I am looking forward to seeing more!

    Ahhhhhhhhh - loops. I'm a wrapped loop pro now, but can't make simple "P" loop to save my life. I need to practice them again. :)
