But hey, there's still a few hours left in Monday, so I'll sneak in under the wire. I recently discovered the site Wire-Sculpture.com, which sells jewelry-making supplies but also offers lots of wire and jewelry-making tips and videos (some are free, some are not.)
If you sign up for the free e-newsletter (scroll down to the bottom of the home page), you'll get access to exclusive patterns that are not among the free offerings. This lovely swirly ring above, by Dale Cougar Armstrong, was the pattern I got. I just love her pieces--I have her book Wirework--which is way above my ability, but this ring is described as beginner-level.
Do check out Wire-Sculpture.com. It's nice to support sites that make the effort to include educational content along with the merchandise.
