On my beading table today is lots and lots of wire wrapping supplies and gemstones. I've been experimenting with different wire wrapping techniques, trying to come up with new ways of creating a custom wire-wrapped bezel setting for a large gemstone pendant. Three days of work and I'm pretty excited about the results, but I'm not too excited about sore wrists and torn up fingertips!
After seeing Andrea's amazing wire wrapping, I had to try it myself! Several weeks ago I had Gilders Pasted some shiny gold metal leaves in iris blue and african bronze. They have been sitting on my table ever since. I think they look really nice hanging from a gold hoop I made from 18 gauge craft wire and then wire wrapped with 26 gauge wire and Toho beads.
