Green Druzy Wire Wrapped Pendant by Elizabeth Bisogni

When you’ve learned how to make a cabochon frame, why not start dressing it up? Elizabeth dressed up this druzy pendant by using pattern wire for the frame as well as twisted square wire. Then, she embellished the frame with a snapset stone surrounded by pearls! What a dose of inspiration!

Elizabeth says, I always loved pattern wire and I wanted to create something different besides bracelets. I took my Olive Green Druzy that I purchased at Wire Sculpture and wrapped it with 3mm Brass Pattern Wire accented with 20-gauge Sterling Silver twisted wire added 4mm white pearls and 8mm olive cz snapset. Then took a small piece of pattern wire and wrap it around the bail. Pattern Wire can also be used to make rings, which I have done also.
