I've almost finished my latest design, it just needs a coat of resin and the back doing and it'll be all done. I'm going to enter it in the latest challenge on the FP blog.

I had a bit of trouble twisting the headpins round after looping them at the top, so if anyone's got any tips on how to do this properly, I'd love to know as I haven't really done this before!

Love it. VERY cool.

As regards the metal work, I have a link to instructions somewhere on here. I am in between exams right now (for my sins) so I'll have a looksee when I am done for the day. It IS straightforward, but takes a bit of practice. Alternatively the way you've done them is perfectly acceptable - if you were making linked sections (say within a necklace) then you'd have to use the loop/wraparound method you talk about - simply for strength).

Hi Sara,

Sorry it's taken me a while to get back to you (all work, no play! :roll: )...

Anyway, here is a good link with instructions on wire wrapped loops:

Hope it helps! :P
