Unakite Focal with Wire-Wrapping


About this design:

I believe this is going to be a focal in yet another necklace. I am also tempted to use it to try my hand at bead embroidery. Love the forest green and the cream and the brown swirls. This was my second attempt at wire wrap and although it looks OK to me, I really need to practice more.

Components:

Unakite, probably and bare copper wire, so far.

    Looks like an excellent pendant to me. Copper wire goes great with the colors in your stone. :)

    Thanks some more to the rest of you from the last time I commented.

    Soon will have more to show you with this one . . . I am using my own recycled glass that has been tumbled and also wire wrapped in copper. Working on it gradually, in between other projects and bead sorting.
    Happy September to everyobne!
