    I absolutely love this wrap! It’s beautifully simple, and keeps a natural look to the whole piece! How did you like using the 18 ga. wire on this size stone? I do love it!

    Thank you, ladies! When I did this wrap, I felt I had to use a thicker wire because this stone is beveled (is that the right word?) so the stone would be secure…normally I wouldn’t use this thicker gauge. :-)

    I really like the cross over effect on the bottom of the stone. It’s a cool design element, but doesn’t take away from the stone.

    Thanks again for your positive comments! K legan, I have no specific instructions for this particular wrap but you can get some really good pointers from a lady by the name of Dawn Blair. She has a blog were she describes some techniques that you can learn from; that’s where I got most of my information. Here’s the link:
