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.


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!
