I picked up a soldering iron a few days ago, and have been playing with ideas for my mom for mother's day.
Today while I was at work I thought this up, and was pretty happy with what I ended up with. I just wrapped some I think it was 24 or 26 gauge wire around itself, sticking in a bead here and there, to represent my nieces' and nephew. I was planning to put in one for all of her kids, and grandkids, but I wasn't sure on the colors for some of my siblings.
After I had the shape I wanted, I soldered the ends to the wire, so it won't come undone, or poke out.
And tada! She loved it! :D
