Do you think that 24 guage wire will work in place of the 28 guage? I never  keep anything smaller than 24 guage... I don't know why...

I have 20 guage wire, so that's not a problem... But I don't want to waste my wire trying to use something that won't work... You know what I'm saying? I don't think I'm being very clear... sorry...

so do you wrap the 28 gauge all the way around the ring or just on the sides?

also do you have to use a dowl or can you use your own finger (to make it fit better?)

Are there any online stores you can recommend for buying supplies?

I'm looking to get into the hobby, and need to get a good price on all the tools and materials I'll need.

Alright, I have a Michael's nearby. I'll go check them out. I'm only going to be making settings and such. My friend is beginning glassblowing, so he is going to make the the charms and pendants and such.
