I have been wondering how to use wire wrapped beads for bracelets. I had a few ideas, but this is the first one that I actually finished and came out ok. I had to figure out some thing first and I actually spent more time making this than I spend on my pendants. Wrapping the bead was the easiest part.
There’s a lot of stuff in this one: beautiful lapis lazuli with pyrite inclusions, chalk turquoise, stabilized turquoise, I’m suspecting some of the beads might be dyed howlite, but I can’t check it without destroying them. The elements I used are steel.
