I am proud of me if I may say so myself.
I was so pleased with my first necklace that I had another go yesterday. There was some of the gold plated wire left and some burgundy and dark green 4 - 6 mm pearls from an earlier bracelet I made. It took a lot less time this time :-) but I still have very sore fingertips. I need to find a safe way of holding the pearl as I am twisting the wire.
I did manage to break the wire once but sorted it. That's what I like about wire, its such an easy material to work with and mistakes can be corrected without compromising on the design or finish.
I think I am ready to move on to the sterling silver wire now :-)
