Another wired pendant

About this design:

I worked for a couple hours on this one, as I had to take it apart a couple of times. I'm happy with the way the way it finally turned out. Now I struggling with how to finish off,maybe just hanging from a pretty chain,or to combine it with other beads and have this as the focal piece??? What do you think.I'm soooo hooked on wire wrapping now. I even dream about it!!!! :)


20 gauge silver plated wire, glass bead and clear crystals.Oh and tiny silver metal beads.

    JC, I love your design and your wire wrapping is bee-you-tee-ful!! I like the way you used the tiny silver metal beads. I’m sure whatever way you decide to highlight this gorgeous piece will be wonderful! I can imagine it with a few companion pieces on either side as well. Just soooo pretty!

    Beautiful, great work! Perfect addition of small beads. I’m very familar with starting over ;) Wirework can be so frustrating then it’s good to have a hammer… However it’s lots of fun!

    Oh boy someone else has the bug! Beautiful! Love the silver beads on there. A simple chain or even a ball chain would be nice.

    Beautiful job! I think this pendant is so pretty that it doesn’t really need anything but a chain.
