Chatter

I was working in the lab,late one night


About this design:

Here's something a little different. I have a necklace made overseas,and it has odd looking wraps that I wanted to copy. Instead of doing a headpin thru the rondelle,I wrapped around the stone twice,crossed wires,and did a "twist tie" thing.Then I fooled around with different top loops. That's why each wrap is different. I like the finished product.
Bear with me here. Kidney wires are a bit hard to showcase.

Components:

Navy blue crystal rondelles,8mm,I think,sterling filled wire (dead soft),and large SS Plated kidney wires from Lima.

    oops– should have read Kat’s comment first! She probably has the words right since I can’t hear worth crap and I kinda make up my own when I can’t catch it all.

    Lovely way to “frame” a round bead. These look great in a cluster!
