I just wind it round a pen then cut with wire cutters, and just bring the ends to meet. I prefer doing a few at a time
Doh!  I never thought of doing it like that.  Gotta be quicker than my cutting several lengths of wire, then bending each one round the barreling pliers, then curling each end of each piece with the ring benders....!

Love them all!
Copper hare for me too
Cow parsley - pictures, or how about larger table coasters, placemats or something?

The trouble with making bullseye tablemats is the cost, it would be at least 4 coasters worth of glass.

Ha ha Dawn, you made me laugh, I used to do that too, until I made some jump rings, and my light bulb went on.

Dawn I've a question for you, I'm using overglazes on float and one piece has a brownish halo around the enamel on the clear glass, any ideas?  Could it be to do with the tinned side? Up, down? That's all I can think of but not had it happen before

copper hare for me and those cow parsley, I rather like them as little pictures I can see a set of them in a frame in a kitchen.

I've put some ferns in the kiln this morning.  ;D
I've a load of small frames I bought in a moment of madness, they were cheap, but not sure black or silver will look right, white frames seem a la vogue just now so I might try painting one with gesso and see how it looks. I really do need to turn them into readies or get rid of them.

Soooo sorry Jill, this never came up as notification, and I didn't notice it in new replies.

Well, if you used float, then I can't imagine it's any kind if reaction (as in silver/sulphur/copper) so my best guess would be a reaction with tin too?

Different colour/batch of enamel?

Thanks Dawn, it's the same enamel so it must be the tinned side of the glass. The piece I'm talking about is the top running hare on the left. Can you see the halo around the hare?
