THE PROBLEM-If you look at other wire wrap design for facetted stone, you will notice that they call for LOTS of wire to build up the base under the stone. The problem with that is holding all those wiggly wires and the it covers so much of the bottom of the stone that no light gets in!
THE SOLUTION! With only 2 wires, just like the 2 wire cabochon style - I will teach you how to suspend the stone to let it sparkle as will as holding it securely! With a simple formula for prong height and wire for the frame, you will be able to complete this design with perfect results! PLUS I have an easy way to make a decorative coil around the bottom of the stone. (shout out to CSL designs!)
This style is suitable for beginner and intermediate wire wrappers. We start with a simple formula that works for every stone regardless of the shape or size, and work our way to the top where we create double rabbit ear loops for the chain to fit, and then on to the many variations to decorate the top.
Each student gets to decide on what they would like to do with the top wires. There are suggestions but this is completely up to what you want to do! To add beads or not, to add a dangle or not, is completely your choice!
