I hope this post finds everyone having delightful days :)

A favorite stone shape to work with is 'donut'... gotta love them for breakfast and they work great for wire also! I've just listed these three Carnelian pendants in my Etsy shop so please be tempted! :)

Made with one continuous three foot, craft copper wire, cutters, flat nose and round nose pliers. The copper wire is a fun look against the color of Carnelian stone and I think I'm quite happy with how these turned out. I hope it gives you some good ideas! All three of these designs are basically the same harness and bale. :)

I can see maybe adding some smaller wire and beads if I wanted to create more elaborate designs with this wrap style. The style of the wrap allows for the pendant to be worn on either side so the design possibilities are great and a reversible pendant is always fun to offer your customers!

Beautiful! I made one with a rhodonite donut some time ago. I used silverplated wire and some beads to embellish the wrapping.

You truly have wire wrapping down to an art. I always look at your blog posts because you have new material.

I love those three donut cabs. I've never been able to figure out how to do a bale like that on my donut cabs. :( I keep trying, but they don't turn out like I like. Those are great.
