Using Jewelry Wire to Wrap and Irregular Stone Jewelry Making TechniqueUsing Jewelry Wire to Make a Pendant by Wrapping a Stone Jewelry Making TechniuqeThere is a jewelry making craft called wire wrapping.  This craft involves using jewelry wire to wrap irregular gemstones and semi-precious stones to make pendants.  In the pictures shown here, we show the front of a wrapped stone pendant at left and the back at right. 

Our approach to wire wrapping pendants involves using our Spiral Maker to make a spiral that becomes the base, upon which we wrap the irregular shaped gemstone.  In the following web pages we will describe our WigJig approach to wire wrapping irregular shaped objects.
