It is Wednesday... so I do try and post what is on my bead table and join in the fun of btw (Bead Table Wednesday)... provided I am actually working on something!
Well, as it turns out, this week I am endeavouring to improve my fairly rudimentary wire working skills. Teaching myself from books ( and an instructional DVD in one of the books) means my progress is a little slower than if I were shown in a class.... but at least I can work on it at my own leisure and time frame.
It is a slow process...I am all thumbs at times and definitely have a long way to go!
Practising with copper wire and gorgeous coloured Para wire helps to keep the cost down.
I love the coloured coils: this purple one is in fine 26 gauge wire.
Here are the wire working books I have been learning from:
1. Bead on a Wire - Sharilyn Miller
2. Wire Style 2 by Denise Peck (comes with a DVD)
3.Totally Twisted by Kerry Bogert
They are all totally fantastic books and I would recommend them all for their ease of explanations and great projects.

Cheers for now,
