Check These Out

The other day I went over to a friend's house. She has been fiddling with wire wrapping. I asked her to show me since I'm really left-handed it's hard to turn the directions around in my mind. All the directions are written for righty's.

I was happy with the way they turned out the top left one is a large stone bead. Two of them are from smashed pieces of my china. The other two are from flat stones made to be pendants. In fact they were in settings and I popped them out.

Not sure what I'm going to do with these. I might sell them but then again, I might just save them and give them as gifts. I'll likely put them on some beaded necklace, as I have tons of beads.

It looks great in my sunroom!
