Yesterday was supposed to be a knitting day, since I was off from work and not feeling well, but... I needed to repair my crystal dangle earrings, and it turned into an obsession.
Then I tried my hand at wirewrapping, via Jodi Bombardier's design in her book, Weave, Wrap, Coil: Creating Artisan Wire Jewelry:
My hands are swollen after this piece. The frame is 16 gauge gold colored copper, wrapped with 28 gauge silver colored copper. It was going good up until the 4th side. Try and try again. These will make great earrings.
