I posted some photos in my album, Lisa G's Jewelry. I would love any feedback...positive/negative. Please keep in mind that they are simple designs as I am just getting started.

Thanks!

Lisa

You are doing an excellent job for just starting! I really like the piece that you say is your first wire work with the circle links..and the blue beads. This is the one pic that turned out a little blurry so I can't really tell for sure..but it looks like your wrapped links might be a little long on the 'neck' part that you wrap around. Maybe you meant for them to be this way...anything goes in jewelry these days! And thats what makes it so much fun! But If you want a cleaner look..try to make that part a little shorter and only go around the neck of it about 3 times...if it goes too much longer it will start to look long and could even possibly bend where you don't want it to. Here is a tutorialfor wire wrapped link:

---Links-Are-Forbidden--- can also find it here in our groups links:

Links > Tutorials > INFO / TIPS / TECHNIQUES > Wire

I also love the concept of the first necklace. I often get bored with repetitive patterns myself and love to break up the strand with different things going on in different sections like you have done here..great job thinking outside of the box!
