Does anyone have so instructions on how to incorporate curly wired crystal drops into a cake topper? I found a supplier for the crystals and possibly the wire but I want to make sure I order the correct items

Hi, I haven't seen any tutorials about those, but Lindy Smith shows how to do them in her new book. She has used 23 or 24 guage wires to do the toppers. icon_smile.gif

wow I would think that the wire would be a heavier gauge than 24 , Thanks for the info I will check out her book to see what I can find .

I thnk she uses them 'cause you can bend them easily and keeps its shape.

Yes that gauge would bend easy , the bride I am looking into this for wants 2 inch crystals hanging from her top teir so I might just have to go to the gem shop to see what the weight will require

I have seen some other people on this site mention that they use 18 gauge wire to hold the crystal toppers.
