Been having fun lately making simple wraps on cabochons (flat-back stones without holes.) These are all done with pure copper wire which I then patina with liver of sulfur and then hand burnish to bring out the highs-and-lows in the copper. All of these are dainty little pieces!

So yeah, I’ve been on a mini swirly kick lately.
Your wire work is really exquisite.
Seriously gorgeous. Your talent & skill really shine in your work.
Thanks thats so nice to hear!
Ive never heard, or seen, the mixed jasper. These are all quite stunning!
Thanks! Mixed impression jasper is such a unique stone and i love that it upcycles scraps into something unique and beautiful.
These are just beautiful!
Wow, stunning! I love the luminosity of the larimar. Your wire wrapping is so beautiful, and I love the patina you got with the liver of sulphur.
That larimar is gorgeous! And the wirework looks like someone with a very fancy up-do!
Gorgeous! I love that mixed jasper, too!
Wow! These are really amazing!
That’s funny! I can totally see that.
woo, how pretty!
I love that “mixed impression jasper”. Now I know what to look for at the gem show later this month!
I love your mini swirly kick! How beautiful!
