One of my dear crazy quilt "sisters" offered to give me some lessons so I thought I would share my work.

The back of the cab is almost as beautiful as the front as you can see in this photo.

It's very difficult for me to wrap those 4 wires and have all those tiny wraps uniform. If I just had one more hand I think I could do a better job. I've added some Swarovski bicones and bronze seed beads and wrapped it in a vintage bronze.
I did this turquoise piece for my second attempt. I'm not as pleased with how I shaped my wires so I will probably redo it. I need a lot more practice with designing my wires.
Jason was in South Africa last year on business and brought back a gorgeous tiger's eye cabochon. I'm working toward getting good enough to wrap that one.
