The Coiling Gizmo is a pretty nifty tool that is so simple and easy to use – yet… I can make so many unique beads Fast!
Wire is available in a huge variety of designer colors – and creating chunky beads with unique color combinations is simple with the right tools… even I can do it. (I am not a jewelry designer nor do I play one on T.V.)
My “Bertie” (the one that dressed up in stockings and heels every day) would have loved the simple sterling silver style coiled beads in a necklace. I – on the other hand – want copper everything! Mix the copper wire with a bit of silver and turquoise – and I’m a happy girl.
