Very, very nice. I can't do loops. Not plain loops, not wrapped loops or I'd make myself a Swarovski rosary! Great job!

I love the loops... the balance of the beads is very appealing.... hmmmm I have chain nose pliers... will have to go bead hunting on HAF Member's Etsy shops.

Gorgeous colour combo!  :)

A tip I found useful for consistent loops - mark your round nose pliers with a marker pen, and you then have a consistent point to wrap your loops from, resulting in consistent sized loops!

Great tip.  Another thing I found is when making loops use more wire than you think you will need.  It is easier to cut off the extra than to realize you don't have enough to finish the loop.  It makes cleaner wraps when you have enough wire to hold onto and bend than struggling with a shorter wire.
