"Wrought Iron" Links

Today's bead is a 22mm black round link. This appears to be an easy to open jump ring, but is actually very strong.

Since the ring opening does not close up entirely, we'll just have to make sure to connect it with something that is wide enough not to slide through the slot.

I thought these were very cool and wrought iron looking.

Wait until you see the sparkly beads I got to go with these!!! That will be tomorrow's post.

I left these all connected on the package so you could see the impact they make as a grouping. Very cool! I have several ideas for adding beads, but need to experiment a bit first.

See you tomorrow! :)

Gorgeous! Would be great for earrings, too, if they're not really heavy.

Beautiful! They will look great for necklaces and bracelets with some added beads. I'm seeing a vision of how they will look.

Want some! I wonder how they would look wire wrapped using annealed steel. At a local artist's festival (May Fest) here in Tulsa, I saw severl artists using this type of wire and plan to use it myself soon.
