I have a bunch of 34 gauge wire I found at Hobby Lobby, but I can't make much with it until I find the proper tools. I've put it here with the larger 30 gauge I use in some of my other pieces, and a penny for overall scale.

Thanks! I love pushing my limits on how intricate I can get, and I can't wait until I get the proper tools to work with this stuff and actually make something :)

I've even found the same size of wire in different colors, so I'd love to try an inlay with it :D

lol I have a tendency to make large projects out of small materials ;)

I'll definitely want to make a necklace of some sort, but I'll have to make a few small practice patches to get used to it first.

Wow, it really is! :D I'm not aware of my own genius! XD
You know, but it would have to be really delicate and light - like made from mithril ot sth. ^^
