This pretty, classic little sparkler - began as a drawing - then Andrea creates a frame out of a heavy gauge 14k gold-filled wire. Once the shape is created, she hammers it for a shimmery finish and to "work harden" the wire. She is now ready to fill in the frame - using a much thinner gauge wire and in this case, the tiniest Swarovski crystals she can get - for diamond-like sparkle. Very pretty!!
