Playing with Wire

I signed up for one of those online jewelry classes a while ago and have slowly been working my way through it -- you might remember that I first used some basics from the class for my project in the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party with the goodies I received from Mandi E. of Craft-o-licious.

Well, I've finally moved through a few more lessons, and I'm really excited with what I'm creating.  Here's what I've come up with this week.

I might list these.....or I might do up another pair using some sodalite and list

And I just finished these chandelier-style - in time for my niece's 18th birthday.  She likes dangling earrings and I used IU colors where she is heading off to in the fall.

Have to admit I was a little intimidated at first by the look of all those loops, but they were really fun to create. Looking forward to playing with them some more - maybe as a pendant base.

 Stay tuned - eventually, I have to get something listed in the shops!!

Learning new skills is always a fun sort of challenge. And it usually leads to more & more variations on what you've already learned ... the possibilities are endless!
