2bmrstremblay, I'm glad you're giving it a try! Make sure to post some pictures of the final product. Here is a close up picture of the letter 'd' [IMG ALT=""]http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/160334/width/350/height/700[/IMG] I've run out of wire but I'll show you the steps to make the letter d on an ipod cord. [IMG ALT=""]http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/160335/width/350/height/700[/IMG] First wrap the wire around a round object, I used a Lipgloss (which I also used for the other letters requiring circles - a,b,d,e,g,o,p) from back to front. [IMG ALT=""]http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/160336/width/350/height/700[/IMG] Then pull the wire upwards [IMG ALT=""]http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/160337/width/350/height/700[/IMG] And bend it back down, again from back to front. I'm sorry, I don't know how to make a capital T, the main issue is that the top of the T starts at the top rather than the bottom, making your wire/words lopsided. If you have to use a T, I would suggest using all lower case letters. If you have any more questions please let me know. I hope this helps.
Well i was working on these last night and was wondering if you had any suggestions for the letter "d". I too was using etsy as examples and am super impressed with how they manage to get the letters so nice. It's obviously practice makes perfect so I am going to stick with it, but was having trouble with the 'd' also will be looking for a T soon but we'll get there one day....luckily I found 5 yds of 12 gauge wire in red at michaels for under $2. It's not really the color I want but I am practicing with it for when I finally do it in silver. Thanks again for the tutorial.
