    I've finally made a pair of earrings and managed the loop
    what do you think , they're still not perfect so don't look too closely but I'm quite proud of myself

      it has taken me ages and I mean AGES to get the hang of the loops
      I was determined to master it if it was the last thing I did
      the imperfections are only tiny so they don't notice when my daughters wearing them
      she's thrilled with them so everyones happy
      now what can I make now ??

          Well done Sunrise. They don't look too bad to me.

          What should you make next?????? hmmmm let me think . . . . . how about a charm bracelet with dozens of wire wrapped charms/beads attached . . .. ok - maybe not just yet. But keep practicing and you'll be making them in no time.

          My first (and only) attempt at wrapped loops was just that. I set my sights way to high and made a bracelet with literally dozens of tiny drop pearls. It took me weeks cos I kept losing my temper with it and putting it down. The finished product sat on a shelf in one of my cabinets for almost 2 years (and rightly so cos it really wasn't very good) but someone snatched it up a few weeks ago. It was only priced at £7 cos it really wasn't very good at all but my customer loved it and more so cos she got it so cheap.

            My only advice for loops and wrapped loops is ignore the instruction books and figure it out yourself!

            I can't make them the way they tell me how in the book, I do however make a pretty mean wrapped loop!

            Get some cheap wire and have a play
