    Aha. Again, using the right tools gives professional results. I like how specific you are about what tools and materials you use, and how much. That’s very helpful.

    Sandy, I love this lesson. My question is using artistic wire. So this is not silver or argentium or copper. If you are using a silver pedant or charm, one should use silver, correct. It looks like the larger bail you made that is a little messy was maybe at 22 gauge silver wire? and going to a 20 gauge could remedy that problem.??

      Hi Cynthia, If I were using sterling silver pendants or charms, then I would use at least silver filled wire and components. I try to match the quality of all the bits in a piece of jewelry.

      I think the messy bail problem was due to a wire that was already too work hardened for this type of coiling.

      Thanks for sharing your ideas!
