Bead Framed Wire Wrap Gemstone Pendant

Just a quick post today - Happy Fourth of July!  My thanks to everyone who served our Country so that we live in what I think is the best country in the world.

I tried a quick wire wrap using two wires (following the free tutorial for a wire bead frame that I posted yesterday) and adding beads to the frame.  It looks nice - as you can see from the picture BUT it really wasn't very easy to do and the bead will spin inside the wrap.  So - I'll post my preferred method of achieving this look in the near future.




Of course, if the bead were round, the spinning part wouldn't matter.  I still think there are easier methods though.

Happy Independence Day!
