    Hi. I always use dead soft wire. I believe the base was 20 gauge and the wrap wire was 26 or 28 gauge.

    Yes, they are Swarovski's, but the Czech also manufacture crystal bi-cone shaped beads too. The quality of the Czech beads is nearly the same as Swarovski.

    Well, they certainly look like it, the cut & refraction is very clean...
    If not Swarkies, then certainly high quality Czech I'd imagine.
    (although, one posted has a point, this is an "Instructables" site, not a "buy my stuff" site...)

    Way to go! I also make jewelry and can appreciate the effort. Doesn't fimo make you feel guilty because it's too easy?

    Yeah, I think these are beautiful, too. Handmade crafts have their own charm even when they're a little unfinished, but yours look professionally designed and constructed. I hope we someday get to see some detailed Instructables so we can make our own :)
