Rosewater and Mint

IMG_3499This set falls under the adage of practice makes perfect.

I took a Craftsy class on creating wireworked findings a while back, and realized I would never become proficient with the techniques unless I practiced.  So practice I did.  Eye pins.  Links.  Loops.  Swirls.  They all participate in these pieces.

I even took a stab at making my own chain!  Yes, that shiny green chain is  made from individual loops, a pair of pliers in each hand.  After the first hour or so, I managed to loosen my death grip on those tools, and actually enjoy the process.

The beads are from stash, acquired who remembers how long ago?  Not I, that’s for sure.  The red ones have small pink roses on them, the green have a melon textures pressed into the glass.
