First of all, let me apologize for my late posting this morning, but my adorably, lovely little granddaughter has kept me quite occupied ALL night. :o)

OK... on to wire! My FAVORITE medium!!!!! It is SO versatile!! It can be shaped and bent and twisted and curved into anything you want!! You can make beads from it, closures, links, bead caps, chains, neck wires, pendants... ANYTHING!!!!! Whatever shape you imagine, can be formed in wire. It can be patinated, antiqued, enameled or left bright and shiny!
