Wire wrapped ring - first attempt

Have always wanted to try some wire wrapped rings, but never got round to it...wanted to try and course, but they always clash with other things. So got on the old Google search, and
found a couple of 'how to's' and youtube specials...and here are my first attempts at a wrapped cluster ring. The purple-y one was my first, and think there's too many large beads, which made the ring very heavy and meant the sizing got smaller than I'd allowed for.

Second attempt went better - neater wrapping, smaller beads and better shape overall. Pleased with it, but will need lots of practise. Got some other wire wrapped rings to try as well - glad I've got a week off to make the most of the practise time!
