Wire-Wrapping: Some First Attempts

I've been away for awhile finishing my MSc (finally officially done - yay!) so I'm going to share some pictures of a couple of old projects that I never posted to my blog. I was really excited to try wire-wrapping after reading through some tutorials (deviantART has some great contributors who post excellent step-by-step instructions of beginner and intermediate projects) and so far, this tutorial has produced my most successful project. I altered the design a bit, and it turned out pretty bright and crazy:

My next attempt was a bit more subdued, but still quite colourful:

I will hopefully have some time to try some more complicated designs within the next couple of weeks, but I can't promise anything! I'm beginning my PhD, and am also in the midst of writing a paper and wrapping up my Masters work for my colleagues. It is quite a busy time, and I'm very excited for the day I finally can take a guilt-free break!

Cheers :)
