mandrel size for Love Me Knots

Hi Stacy,
I'd like to make some knots in smaller gauge wire - 18 and 20g.
and wondered what size mandrel I'd need use for each of those gauges and how many coils for each segment so it fitted together correctly. I have your tutorial for the bracelet, but
would like the lighter gauge wires for earrings to compliment
the bracelet.

Thanking you.

Hi Jennifer!
I have a "formula" for figuring how to change the mandrel/wire size which will allow you to create knots in just about any size - from just about any gauge of wire. Please email me though my "contact me" page and I'll email the PDF to you.
