i love to string tiny seed beads onto wire and then sew the wire through cards (put beads on the wire where it shows on both sides for a cool, 3-D card) or through photos themselves- you can make an awesome frame for a photo that way. also, the coolest and neatest way i've come up with to finish any bead and wire creation is to use tiny pliers to twist the end of your shape into a spiral, kind of like quilling but with wire. if you make the spiral tight enough you can even put beads on that part and they won't come off.
