... and what can I use instead of a ring mandrel....?? 
I read somewhere that you can use a thick magic marker pen barrel, and if it is too small put some layers of masking tape on top.

I've never tried wire wrapping before and I  only had my phone handy to take a piccie, but, this is one of my beads with the George's tutorial and, I'm chuffed to bits with it  (even though it's very very amateurish and a cr..p picture!!)


Thank you George!! Kiss Kiss

Thanks Marg... I made one using copper wire and its far too small... but this is the first wire tutorial that I have actually been able to understand and 'do' fairly competently... Thanks George Smiley Smiley

Here you are, my first was the one on the left, it's very wonky, but the others are better! I made some flatter beads for the purpose of doing the rings. I really enjoyed it, except my thumb is really sore! I guess that's what comes of not doing silver work for a while..
Thank you so much for the tut!
