Fab Friday Finds




I was checking out Jewlie Bead's etsy shop last week and saw this gorgeous bee pendant and I couldn't believe the price... then I realized that the price was for a tutorial to make the pendant... so You guessed it I bought the tutorial .... I have every gauge of copper wire from 14 to 28 except for 22 and 26 which are the two gauges used for most of the wire wrapping... I tried every hardware store in Maine that I drove past yesterday everyone has 18 gauge and 24 no-one has 22 gauge anything... I may just be forced to use sterling for the 22 gauge.... as I really want to try and make it! The 18 guage spine & antenae are done!

I bought that wonderful tut aswell and have got the same problems obtaining the wire. But I don't give up *g

I discovered I have pink 26 gauge wire ... think it is silver plated something that has been coloured?

I did use 22 gauge silver but I should have annealed it as I think it was hard so my body didn't squish back down evenly....
