Copper wrapped turquoise teardrop

I figured out another way to wrap the teardrop nicely, but this technique doesn’t allow a woven bail on the top, just one piece of wrapped wire. I have a lot of these teardrops, so I’m probably going to wrap them in black wire – goth style – for the upcoming convention. This one is wrapped in bare copper, which means it will tarnish over time. The bead doesn’t look like the stabilized turquoise I usually use, so I suspect it’s dyed howlite.

Available on Etsy.
