after some good criticism, i decided to try out some more advanced wire wrapping. fortunately, i have a few different gagues of wire sitting around. its a little bit wonky, but i think i can get the hang of it!

how it hangs:


lying down:


what do you think?

**I used a tute from Remy Heath's website! Thanks for pointing me in that direction, talyra!!!

I love the way the stone is just contained in the wire instead of hanging from it- great choice!  This looks really professional and sturdy Smiley

You've been to Remy Heath's website! You should really say so when you post something made from a tute Wink Great work on the pendant, your spirals are really neat!
Isn't that weaving style for the bail both so much fun and SO infuriating? Cheesy

Oh .. I like the idea of the stone in a cage rather than wrapped!  It looks very nice.

That's neat, the wire looks like a cage "holding" the stone, rather than simple wire wrapping, quite unique Smiley
