Saturday's findings class

I was going to show pictures of what the squirrels did to my parsley plants but my pictures didn't work out so it'll have to be pictures of what I did in class last Saturday instead.

The class was custom wire findings taught by Lisa Claxton. Wire isn't necessarily my friend - just yet - but I really enjoyed this class. We made headpins, with and without balled ends (those were made from fine silver with a torch), earwires, with and without crystals, and I tried to duplicate the wires with balled ends on a favorite pair of (bought) earrings. It worked!
We also made several different styles of clasps and simple S-connectors. After struggling in previous wire classes, I did quite nicely in the one. I'm actually happy with my results. Maybe there's hope for me yet.
