    Default Wire Wrapped Bead

    I found a heart shaped red glass bead in my bits box, so I thought I'd have a go at making a wire wrapped bead.

    Default It's Impaled

    "It looks lovely! but won't it fall through the gaps? "

    No - It's threaded on to a 0.8mm post, which is soldered top and bottom for security, it has freedom to spin - (or rattle up and down as it chooses).

    But that's all.

    When I imprison a heart - it STAYS imprisoned!!!

    you soldered it with the bead in place? how so? I would've though it couldn't stand the heat and melt/crack/break.
