    Oh my! This is wonderful! I LOVE how you wrapped the pendant and the silver quartz is a fantastic compliment to it.
    I am trying to teach myself wire wrapping and am curious as to how you segued from the braid into the bottom wrap. That is if you don’t mind sharing, of course….

    Gail, I started off with a 5 way braid and continued the braid unto the front of the cabochon (cab). Once I mold the braid to hold the cab a little better, I took the farthest left and right wire and connect them to the back of the cab. This left 3 wires in the front. I then continue with the 3 wires and braided them all the way to the top of the cab. I hope all of that made sense. : ) Thanks
