Here is my first wire wrapping since I've started making jewelry again. The pictures are taken with my new camera (mentioned in my previous post) and while I still find darn difficult to capture sterling silver, I hope these do show the wrapping details.
The piece is inspired by Nancy Wickman's free earrings tutorial.
The stone is a gorgeous quality amethyst which really sparkles under the light. The entire pendant with bail is just a bit over 4cm (close to 2") and I've used 1mm, 0.4mm and 0.25 mm silver wire for wrapping. I hope you all like it.
A few more pictures below, including a close-up of the wire work. Loving my new camera and my new Magnilamp that allowed me to do the wrapping without serious flaws :)
