Never too late for unique Holiday gifts :)
You were too busy,
you had too many options and found it hard to choose,
you were on a terrific trip to south America :)
you just couldn't choose...... probably another million reasons can be found, but the bottom line is the holidays are just behind the corner and you are missing some unique and original gifts.
what to do ?
option 1 : if you are crafty : try one or all of my Online video tutorials, you can make special affordable handmade gifts that will draw for sure some WOWs and WAUs
option 2 : if you look for presents for crafty people you can get them one or all of my tutorials, if they don't have them already I'm sure they'll be thrilled about it.
option 3 : buy a nice little box and print my special holiday gift certificate , this certificate will enable the receiver to shop with me with a pre-paid amount.
I offer 3 options : 39$, 89$, 129$ .
option no 4 : yes... there is yet another 4th option, pick the item / items you would like to give as a present, i will send you a nice high rez photo for you to print , you can then get a nice gift box at a local shop and put the print in it.
this will show the person you are buying for that you thought of him/her , bought them something lovely that will only be a little late, or in other words better late then never :)
Happy shopping !

or in other words, some tips and tricks to better approach crocheting with metal wires.
Wire type -When crocheting with wire its important to pick the right materials, make sure to pick dead soft wire, it looks almost the same as regular wire but the ability to crochet with it is very different.
Wire Gauge - wire projects are often made with higher values, the lowest I use is 28gauge (0.3mm), the higher the no the thinner the wire , the more flexible it is and the jewel will be softer.
Wire temperature - keep in mind that metal changes its flexibility and softens with temperature, enable the wire to warm up a bit before you get into the temp. of crocheting, do a little project before starting the work on the actual piece.
Stretching the wire- another tip to keep in mind is that metal hardens when stretched, so be ware of that and dont put it into too much tension, always prefer techniques in which you dont have to roll the wire around your finger and keep the wire in tension as you do when crocheting with yarn or cotton.
Wire remembers... - Metal has memory, so if you bend it or wrap it, it will remember and will tend to get back into that form.
Hook type - Its important to pick a good crochet hook that wont get worn out too fast, the wire may leave its marks and the hook will not be as smooth as it was when you started working with it, its not enjoyable to work with such a hook , it squeak and gets stuck :)
Edges - when working with metal wires the edges can be a big thumbs down if not handled properly, first of all make sure to wrap it 2 to 3 times in a hidden place before cutting the wire, then I recommend to cut the wire by making it "tired" and not by cutting it with scissors, this way the edges are much softer and the wire is much less noticeable. It is don by moving the wire ןמ circles rapidly until it breaks.
crocheting with metal wires is awesome !
