A while back I was bemoaning my horrible wire wrapping skills on the comments to Lori's blog, Pretty Things. She gave me some really good advice. She said to just do it! And do it again. That's the way she learned -- just by repetition. Smack my head w/ my hand. So profound (?) it never occurred to me. I thought I was just destined to be unable to do this cool trick.
So, thanks to Lori, I sat down with a great little book from Kate McKinnon that had excellent photos and wrapped until my hands hurt (ergonomic plyers would be so nice!). Here's what I came up with.
A lot of the not-so-good wraps, yes. But also a lot of progress. I'm still not a whiz at this. I need to practice more but I'm less daunted by it. (This a practice bracelet, not meant to be worn.)
So here was a case where I was really trying and not lying about that at all!
