I am looking to make ornaments from costume jewelry and want to use deco wire for some glam effect. What gauge will bend easily and still retain shape? I don't want to buy a bunch of wire I won't use because it won't hold up in storage, and it will need to be thin enough to sandwich between the jewelry pieces.

You would no doubt need the small stuff they bind flowers with. Your local craft shop can tell you, or Google jewelry wire and see what they think.
You can also E-6000 the mismatched pieces to photo and mirror frames for a wonderful effect!
If you make some, take some nice photos and share!
Choose a heavy board, 10x13 or preferrably larger. Drill holes for Christmas lights to poke through, in the shape of a Christmas tree. Hot glue jewelry pieces to decorate tree. Beautiful result!
