    Wowza Moogie – these are most excellent! You did a beautiful job wiring! Are these going to be Christmas gifts?

    Thanks Robin! I am currently having technical difficulties because all my designs didn’t work & now it’s lost my descriptions & products I used!
    Uno momento…

    I haven’t patinaed yet. Which ones do you vote for patina?! Definitely the blue lace agate, imo.

    Really beautiful stones! The wire wrapping is just enough ‘fancy’to show them at their best.

    I saw your friendship request, when I accepted it, the it dropped the whole request. I’m having problems with some of my stuff too. As far as patina, I think the dark blue would look great, but I also like them they way they are.

    I got your acceptance! That part of the website is kinda kooky. I’m going to try to send a message.
    I realized the blue lace agate wasn’t in the pics so I added it!
    Thanks for your input about patina. That’s the kind of thing I have a hard time deciding on.

    These are all so wonderful. I especially like the way you added dangles to the copper ones. I’ve never seen anyone do that before. Really a cool look. The stones are all gorgeous and you’ve done a spendid job making them shine. I like them as they are but would probably patina the silver.

    Wow!!! They’re all pretty. My favorites are the copper ones and that Mookaite!!! I’m a fan of leaving silver shiny … that’s just me.

    These are excellent, especially the copper ones(which I think are good without patina). I think patina on the green and on the dark blue one would add a nice layer of effect. The druzy, blue lace and moukite would be amazing either way. I always work in Parawire so I’ve never tried patina, does it end up tarnishing further after getting to the look you want?

    Super wirework! Nice choices for wrapping. The middle ones in each row are my favorites, but they are all good!

    Kathryn Lobert says:

    These are the type of wrapped pendants I LOVE. The wire is stunningly and gracefully wrapped and serves to enhance and glorify the stone’s beauty while leaving the stone free to shine on its own. Love this!

    Moogie says:

    Thanks so much everyone. I truly appreciate your input.
    Stingray, I don’t have much experience with patina but i’m thinking it’s not any more subject to tarnish. Anyone with more experience is welcome to chime in. I have to say I’m so happy to find others who like “shiny”! Seems most other wire workers patina their work, esp silver. I think I’ll keep things the way I prefer them :)

    Wow Moogie, these are fantastic! I didn’t know you also did wire-wrapping to this extent. Fabulous designs that really showcase the cabs. Each one is so different in style & presentation. What is the stone on the one in the first row, far right, with the four swirls in front? They are ALL wonderful! :)
