My partner bought some steel wire for a wreath (yes, he made one with a looooooooooooot of christmas balls!). There was a lo left after he was finished and then he told me: That is now your wire.
Okay... mh... it is really thin but quite sturdy. So I started to play with it. I ended with trying to braid the wire and after some initial problems, it was surprisingly easy.
I used it to wrap it around these gorgeous turquoise and rustic lampwork beads (made by Julia Hay). The design is simple but I like the look. Especially the texture the braided wire is adding!
They are also listed in my shop here :)
