Default Wire works is giving me grief!

Hi need some help urgently!!! I decided to do a double swirl for a card that I am using for a swap. I need some help... How do you get it to swirl smoothly? Mine looks all man handled when I get done with it... I find it is kinda flimsy or something. The non su wire is much more reasonable to deal with... or do I have them mixed up????

Help... tips needed!
TIA
Kerri

I have'nt worked with wire much but if you use a pen that is round it works smoothley when you take it off the pen gently make it smaller in the center HTH

Default Wire Works

If you have a pair of needle nosed tweezers it will help. If not you need something to grab the end of the wire and gently twist it in on itself. Kind of hard to explain. I believe there is a site called Wire Works and it will show maybe better than I can explain.

I know what you mean though, if it helps, I have been there.

I have the needlenose pliers to do it. It really makes it easier. I used it for the second card shown in my gallery.

HTH,
Shirley

The only way I got the wire to do anything good for me was to wrap it around something. A pen is good if you want it that size. I was using paper clips, eyelet setting tools, all sorts of stuff!

It can be frustrating - I did wire for a swap and half way through I wish I hadn't!

Good luck!
