> Hi Susan,

I just finished this with my HS jewelry class. This was an intro to beading they
had to do on their own using the offloom technique. I have the directions all
written but they have been zeroxed a few times and aren't super clear. Will try to
bring them home fron School, scan and send. I use 28ga. beading wire from Rings
and Things but any 28 ga wire would work.
