Ring bling and wire work

Hi all yesterday ( Saturday ) I went to  Art in Action at Waterperry Gardens and what a fantastic day it was with so much to see, more than we could do in a day I would have loved to show you all some photos of the day but being a bear of little brain I forgot to put the SD card back in my camera :(. How ever I did learn how to make a wire ring, was to late to sign up for the class but the tutor was very helpful and talked me through it, so had to do it as soon as I got home before I forgot :)
I've used a small piece of sea glass and a few beads

and this is a piece of shrink plastic decorated with UTEE and then wire wrapped. I really enjoyed making these and will certainly be doing some more in the future :)

Fabulous pieces - I love the ring.
I have a wire wrapped ring that I made at a workshop and I went to a workshop where we made bangles the same way.

You've made me think about my wire wrapped things I once did but not a clue where they are. Love what you have done - the shrink looks pretty thick or is it an illusion?
