Hi gang!

I am so pleased with the way this wrap came out, I just had to share:



The stone is a heat-treated agate - I love the white banding in it.  (For those who don't know, heat-treating is a permanent color enhancement, unlike dyed stones. Smiley )

I used 22 gauge sterling silver wire to wrap it - I think it would be a little better with 20 gauge, but I am still pretty happy with the end result. Cheesy

Loves it! I like how the wire enhances the natural shape of the stone without overwhelming it.

Thanks zatanna!  That's always my goal when doing wire wrapping - not always successful, but always trying. Cheesy

nice work!  I like the stone and wire wrapping.  I am a continual learner of the stone types/enhancement/etc.  thanks.
