Pendant for him

About this design:

This is a pendant that I made in exchange for a handmade leather belt. It is going to the same person that my last piece went to only this one is for him! Since it is for a man I kept the wire work fairly simple. The front and back are mirror image so it can truly be worn facing any direction.

Components:

Blue opalized wood (cabochon), sterling silver wire (various sizes)

    He’ll love it. Like the way you used the curved wire to hold the stone in place.

    I had always wondered if wirewraps could be for men, looks like you hit the mark. Is the frame-base one continuous piece of wire?

    Whoa baby, this is gorgeous! Did you get this stone locally? It is amazing & unique. You really have the wirewrapping technique perfected. I think the guy came out better in this trade!
