Feeding the Need....

Every now and then I have to 'feed the need' to create something colorful! I wrapped these Paula Radke dichroic glass beads while working at the Gallery 812 last month. At the time I wasn't sure if they were going to become a necklace, bracelet or just components for several pieces. Then I decided to focus on some small and more delicate swirls than I usually make. These are made from round wire that I hammered flat on one end and then started the swirl there so that the center is more defined then just rolling up round wire. It's a subtle difference but I like it. The necklace has come together quite nicely and when I get more beads I'll probably do some variations of this for a similar bracelet.
