Digging in

My wire order arrived today, hurrah! Yes, I am stocked. For awhile, anyway. I picked up some sizes that I haven't worked with much, and immediately began a new project with 22 gauge wire. Oh, boy, that's tiny. But it's very, very cool. I'm making some teeny tiny knot links with itty bitty micro-faceted tourmaline; the tourmaline are trapped inside 6 mm rings that look huge in contrast to the micro-maille knots.

And I thought it was small in 20 gauge. Ha! 20 gauge looks enormous now.
