    Wow, that is pretty! I have to try and make one of these! Just wondering, could you substitute the wire with a loop on top with just a plain old paper clip bent into a loop at the top? Also, what string did you use?

    very sweet. I'd make my own eyepins out of wire so that you could do the wire wrap all the way to the top so there'd be no chance of it catching on clothing. Just sayin'.
