Class samples

"Knit with Wire and Beads" is a class I have coming up soon. I am finally crossing things off on my "to do" list and got a couple of these done to take to the shop tomorrow. The one on the left is done with 26 gauge wire and the one on the right is 24 gauge. I like the looks of the 24 gauge wire better, but it is harder to knit with. Both of them made my hands hurt after a little while, so would not try doing one of these all at once. Take a couple of breaks and give your hands a rest. You could adapt this technique to whatever size you want....I am thinking a cuff bracelet might be kind of cool. Or covers for jar candles. Anyone else have an idea?

Very pretty - how do you knit with wires? I'm very curious indeed.
