The Mythical and Magical Seahorse

I had this great chrysocolla stone and wanted to wire wrap it but struggled quite a bit with it. The irregular shape and smoothness of the stone made it difficult but I finally won out!



It looks a little off-centre and I really tried to fix that but the shape of the stone wouldn't let me!

Special thanks to this tutorial:

Thanks for looking!

It may be a little off-center, but what isn't? Grin I'd wear that in a heartbeat. I wear a lot of black, and that would add a nice splash of color to any wardrobe! Great job!

To bead or not to bead...Pfft, that's not even debatable.

I think it came out very well! It's a nice stone to show off in that manner Smiley

Looks nice.  We just got into tumbling rocks.  I would appreciate any tips on wire wrapping.  What do you do with the ends?  I'm thinking you tuck them in and file them down.  I've only tried once and it came out but the ends are showing.  Do you know of any tutorials?
