Arrrrgh, just for fun – Matey!

Yes, it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day, I’m just dorky enough to try but not cool enough to pull it off, so I’ll spare you and stop here  😉  Although I’m sure that Pirates of the Caribbean is on the watch list for tonight.

Step by Step Wire Jewelry, Summer 2009 issue

Cruising Borders (I do that a lot) I could not resist the Summer 2009 issue of Step by Step Wire Jewelry. It had such fun rings on the cover. I just happen to have a nice, squishy glass bead that DH made for me so I gave it a try.

Step by Step Wire Jewelry - fun rings!

I used 14 gauge, half round, dead soft Sterling Silver wire as it’s what I had on hand. Heating the ends of the wire until they beaded up turned out to be more challenging than I expected but, with DH’s help it actually worked 🙂  I then hardened it with a rubber mallet.

Now to talk Jack into making me more squishy or flat beads!
