I saw the tutorial for this design ( by 'Oxana Crafts' ... her wirewrapping videos have been so helpful and inspiring to me) so I thought I'd try it!

It looked fairly simple, but it turned out to be the trickiest piece I've ever tried... and she made it look so easy!

I was using sterling silver wire... which isn't cheap, so I was determined to keep going.... and so after lots of sighing, and a little bit of swearing... I eventually got there!

If anyone wants to try wirewrapping, she does some good beginners tutorials ...

It is so beautiful! Your pieces are wonderful! Wish I had the money to purchase this one.
Thank you KTDID49! I do my best to keep the prices of my work down, but the price of silver has gone way up this year!
I spend hours looking for interesting stones! This one took me longer than usual!
but a good test of patience. x

This is beyond beautiful. The stone is gorgeous and the wrapping is perfect.
