Although this sample is made using sterling silver wire, it would look great is many other wire colors as well. You can either keep it simple or customize it by adding beads or other types of adornments to give it personality and pizazz!

    I use 16 gauge (and only 11 inches) and put beads on it before making the bend. The smaller gauge allows for more variety in beads because of the smaller hole needed.

    Thanks so much for publishing this. I’ve been trying to get this right for some time & not been happy with my results. Although this looks like what I’ve been doing, there’s a few nuances I see that might make a difference in my outcome. Will be trying this quite soon.
    Thanks again.
