    It would be interesting to see how anyone has used it in a design — maybe wire-wrapped or set in a mounting. I’m assuming it’s undrilled.

    I don’t know how to wire wrap – want to learn. too funny, had a dream about it just last night where I saw ‘a kit’ – don’t even know if such a thing exists. – what do you do with the edges – the wire ends – file? solder to another part of the wrap?

    Kitty – forgive. I should stop till I load up on caffeine…… Pretty, Moody Pick! Hematite and Blue Pearl – perfect marriage – and stormy w/black shell. I love both, don’t know that I’ve ever put together. I’m gonna try now that you’ve pointed it out – great combo

    Love the pick! Wet here, too.

    I took a stone wrapping class in the fall. We learned 3 techniques but not cabachons. They’re different and harder because of being flat on one side and domed on the other. Making a cage for a pointed stone is the easiest.

    I have to keep watching for classes. That one, it seems gets filled quickly at my local shop! That and chain making! – which is ok here – I don’t think I have the patience for that.

    Thanks Smoky Rose Chick! (I just checked back!)
    I’ve never wire wrapped a stone (exactly) but I have set a cabochon in a box bezel (I think it was called). Just about drove me crazy! And chain making is FUN!! If you like knitting and small things that is! I find it rewarding and therapeutic. I like to “knit” chain while watching TV. Chainmaille is also a great addition to jewelry!

    smoky chick,

    regarding wire wrapping – the metal edges of the wire are generally cut w/ wire cutters and tucked if doing wire wraps… like wrapped loops. otherwise, there’s ways to file the edges of your wire smooth, good to do if you make your own ear wires :) … do find good teachers, very important – esp if you’re not sure you’re comfortable working w/ wire… consider what kinds of wire work you might want to learn too… do you like intricate designs or bigger bolder kinds… hope this helps!
