    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?

    don't know what's wrong, but I didn't receive an e-mail notification about this comment...
    Make a pic when you're finished!

    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'.
