Thank you  Smiley

Sorry Ilona, on re-reading the thread I now realise you were asking Goerge what wire she uses, oops Embarrassed  The wire on George's bracelets is perfect.

Great work Shirl. Not a disaster but a learning curve.

I would echo what the others have said and suggest maybe self capping the beads with some heavier wire and then using jump rings or stations of russian wedding style rings to divide them?

I love cord too Smiley

LOL I generall use 1mm for double wrapped or 1.2/1.3mm for simple turned or self capped stations. Alison's right, mobius or flower weave units (2 or three jump rings linked together) can also look lovely.

I still think it looks great now Smiley

Now you have got me all confused talking of self capped stations and mobious and flower weave units! I haven't got a clue what you are taliking about Cheesy

I agree it hasn't been a waste of time, I might have been upset if it was real silver that got wasted, as I hate waste.

I have learned a lot, and enjoyed it and all your suggestions mean my next one will be better I hope. I have loads of beads waiting to be made onto something lovely.
