Lovely and delicate.

Very pretty traceyalex! I just wish I could see more detail in your pictures because I think you do great work. Are those twisted rings in between the units of Romanov?

Very nice job! I also like the inclusion of the twisted rings. How did you ever make the closures on those rings so smooth. I always have a dickens of a time closing twisted rings.

Much better picture! Smile It's very pretty. I love oval beads too. They fit in places that some rounds beads just don't work.

Pretty!

I want to use more beads in my stuff, but I have such a hard time making the eye pins. It should be easy, but I can never get both sides to look right and it frustrates me.

I just buy eyepins from Fire Mountain... then you only have to do 1 eye! They're about $3/100!

Eye pins are very easy to make if you practice them. I would not pay for ready-made eye pins when you can make them in seconds after a short period of practice. Smile

Yep, and make sure you bend the wire at a 90 degree angle before you make the eye, or you will end up with a "P" instead of a centered eye.
