I can't STOP!!!

Twisting wire!


My thumb and forefinger on my left hand are developing some hard callus..

I have been busy winding wire around and around to make more twisted wire beads...just got some put on a wire for another bracelet...

sterling silver hand coiled bead bracelet artisan jewelry wire wrapped

It hasn't been tumbled, and I haven't added the clasp yet,
All sterling silver weighs almost a full ounce...

I ♥ these beads!

You put it in a rubber barrel with some stainless steel shot, (YUP kinda like the stuff that goes in shot gun shells) add water and a detergent for cleaning, it goes on a machine that turns it around and around...say for about an hour more or less...
When removed from tumbling..it's bright shiny and the silver is tempered so it's harder...
