Here's a trivia question and answer for you about wire....If you twist 2 strands of 22 gauge wire together what is the gauge of the newly twisted wire? Now I thought, being the retired accountant, that 2 times 22 would result in an 11 gauge wire. But, nooooo. It turns out to be 16 gauge. How and why? Haven't a clue. Perhaps there's a chart out there in wire land, but I haven't found it yet.
Now back to my pink crystals. I went on making a pink crystal bracelet from the twisted wire and jump rings. Another moment of happiness when I found a pink Swarovski crystal in my stash for a charm to match.
