Here's another wire wrap I did the other day. I think I got the wire and cab in the mail Friday and had to start on it that evening because I was so excited! This one is a commission piece made for a friend. Once again, part of the credit has to go to the tute that started it all: http://andy321.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=wwp&action=display&thread=26661
You guys that think you can't do this have to realize I didn't think I could do this either and it was a long process getting to this point.  Wink

You did a fantastic job. Your coils are tight and straight, and the stone is very secure in the cage.

So pretty. Thank you for all the lovely pictures.  I love the design especially the three curls at the top.

Haha! Don't be discouraged already! If I would have thought like that even a few weeks ago I would never have made this!

Hahah we will see! For a beginner, how much would you estimate the starting costs to make one little pendant at?

I wouldn't say it would be that expensive at all. You just need some square and half round wire. I would stay around 21 or 22 gauge for both. I paid about $6 for 4 yards of silver plated square on Ebay and about the same for 4 yards of the half round. A lot of people that wrap will tell you to get copper to practice on, but that's up to you. Next you will need something to wrap. Starting out I would stick to something like glass, resin or shell simply because it's cheaper. You can find some all over Etsy and Ebay if you look. I even saw 6 resin cabs for under $2 on Etsy somewhere.

Fantastic
I do a lot of wire wrapping too, mainly seaglass
Always like looking at others designs to get inspired
and your piece is so beautiful

@Sparkly Sharp Fabolous: About prices, if you want to practice, you can also buy steel, it is very cheap and you can practice your designs there
tools are also not very dear
