pendantThis gemstone pendant uses only wire to securely hold a gemstone. Pretty, elaborate setting isn't it? No solder necessary.

Although these instructions use the author's ingenious jig, you can also make this pendant using your own tools and mandrels.

This is an intermediate to advanced wire wrapping project. Many thanks to Gail Jones for allowing me to publish it.
