I am hooked!! I need lots of practice, but it is so much fun. I want to try different patterns! different types of wire - brass! copper! Oh, the possibilities are endless with the overflowing supply I have of my beloved seaglass!
(Confession: I then went to Michael's, with 55% off coupon in hand, and bought wire. THAT store goes against almost every grain of my being... but I did it.)
Next night: Copper wire on rootbeer seaglass w/ swirl practice.

|Now, I'm going to go dream up some more wire wraps...|
