I recently finished a gift, a two-sided pendant. This is the third time I've wire wrapped this stone - the first two times just didn't look right. First I tried copper in a herringbone weave variation, and I liked the copper, but not the weave. Then I tried a flame weave in silver, but I couldn't get the frame to sit around the rectangular pendant nicely.
I wanted to incorporate the cross pendant as well, and came up with a woven setting for the stone that allowed me to bring in the pendant as a part of the piece, instead of just a last minute add-on. I like that one side shows off the stone, an aqua terra jasper, and the other the pendant.
The chain is also handmade - it's a viking knit with bead accents. I
thought the viking knit tied into the pendant weave nicely, and the
green beads brought it all together in a cohesive, final piece.
As always, there is room for improvement, but I'm pretty happy with the piece - and I'm told the birthday girl is too!
