First sterling necklaces


I made these out of sterling silver "stitches" that I taught myself from a very helpful book about wire work. They look very nice, though the one with the single tear drop is the one I believe nurse S stole, but never mind. In any event, the problem is that I didn't know you have to prepare the wire by sanding the ends of each piece before you make each "stitch" or it will stick on clothing...So alas, these are sticky and catch a bit on my sweaters and less than smooth shirts. I hope to make improved versions as I go along. Meantime, I am sure some relative would be forgiving enough to enjoy getting them! 8D
