spent week last month camping on the shore of Lake Superior, and since I always bring back so many of the stones that I have too many bookends and paperweights, I decided to try my hand at making wire wrapped pendants. Pretty happy with the results. These 5 took me about an hour to make, and I may make some more out of the hundred or so I brought back if they sell.

I love the little kinks you put in the wire, they look like wee lightning bolts.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Your designs look very pretty, and the pendants are attractive, but I have some reservations due to the weight of the stones. Make sure the wire can support them, and that they are not too heavy to wear. Or maybe they are look bigger in the pictures than they really are.

Such beautiful stones!  I miss the Great Lakes and all the wonderful things they have to offer.  Your pendants are a gorgeous way to display all the pretties that you collected!
