We called this "Bob Wire" when I was growing up and four strands was usually enough to keep the cattle in. We have several rolls of barbed wire on hand but no critters to contain so we're repurposing our barbed wire into rustic garden art.
Apparently, we're not cutting ourselves enough with our glass work. After the first few attempts at a barbed wire star Jason's forearms looked like he had been crawling through the briar bushes. We quickly discovered it takes a great deal of patience, a little finesse, long sleeves and a good pair of gloves to manipulate the wire. I guess you could say we put our blood, sweat & tears into our work! :D
