The wrapping in this pendant might be a little bit overkill, but I really had a trouble making the stone stay in place, although a piece of wire goes through the bead. It still slightly, but is perfectly wearable nevertheless. I can’t recognize the small beads that I used here, might be some form of quartz or anything else. I used bronze wire, which may tarnish, but I’m not sure, it’s the first coil of this particular wire that I’m using. It’s much harder than copper that I use most of the time, and makes my fingers sore. But I like the colour, it goes well with most kinds of jasper.
