Double Dips

New flamework findings - Double Dips! Made with 18 gauge copper wire with hand wound glass beads on both ends of the wire length. Cut them in two and use as headpins or twist and create a loop or make into a clasp.

Double Dips!

Thanks roseybud! :-)
They're fun to make and I think they'll be more fun to use. It's a challenge to make them quickly so they don't crack! LOL!

These are great!
I tried to make some lampwork headpins a while back - they were not my best idea -lol!
All nicely cut to length before I started torching....someone 'forgot' how well sterling silver conducts heat ....need I say more? ;o)

Ohh, Cindy! Those are really FABULOUS! I can definitely see a variety of uses for them - I think you've come up with something that'll sell wonderfully! They seem so versatile. Will you be offering more colors, when you find yourself more accustomed to the creative process?
