First Wrap Lab Sapphire Pendant


About this design:

I decided to try to wrap one of my gemstones. It's not too bad for a first try. I was so excited to get it done last night. I used silver plated wire 24
gauge. Next time (If there is a next time) I will use solid silver or gold plated I just wanted to see if I could do it, least I can wear it now. LOL

Components:

24 gauge silver plated wire. 8ctw lab created purple sapphire.

    Sweet – looks like the little purple and white bunny is peeking out at it longingly. Great “first” try.

    Thank you Linda. I didn’t even realize she was in the picture. I was trying so hard to get a shot of the pendant. Too funny..

    Thank you. All of you. I looked at it again when I got up and thought well I guess I’ll just buy a quick mount for it. I think it is 14mm if I remember right. It wasn’t easy to wrap. I certainly appreciate all the nice comments. I would try it again.

    Your nice comments have made me rethink I guess I will wear it for a while this way. I don’t think it is going to escape the little mount I made. LOL
