Green Apple Wire Wrapped Pendant


About this design:

I've had this stone for a while now; I bought it at a rock shop that is in a small town to the west of my home town Moose Jaw. I can only go there once a year or so because otherwise it would break the bank! He has the most amazing shop there!
As I was working on making the bail, the wire told me it wanted to become a leaf in the front......so I had to weave another piece for the bail!

Components:

Chrysocolla Stone, Copper Wire ~ 20g & 24g

    GASP! Elaine, this is another stunning pendant! Your wirework continues to amaze me! I love the color of the focal and the copper wire is perfect with it! I’m happy you “listened” to the wire and created that fabulous leaf!!! :D

    If I came up to visit you (along with any of you who would care to join me….. 8) ), would you teach me how to create beauties like the ones you create??? Pretty please with sugar and honey on top? 8) Seriously, did you teach yourself or use a tutorial? Hugs, dear twin! :D

    Someday, if I’m feeling really confident about wrapping, I’ll try to write down exactly how I did some of them and share with everyone!

    Thanks, Lynn…my twin!! :-D

    Elaine-I am so in awe of your wire wrapping ability. I just did my first necklace with simple wrapped loop links and I am in even more awe than I was before I tried it myself. Just gorgeous!
