Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
August 10, 2011


I purchased several polished stones with no holes. I want to wire wrap them into pendants, do you have a DVD that would help me, as I am a beginner?

Hi Ava, depending on whether your undrilled stones are flat, rounded or very irregular in shape, my best advice would be to first look at the sample photos of these four choices:

  1. For a flat stone, similar to a cabochon, you could use DVD 2 in the Beginner Series, that teaches how to formulate and create a frame to make a pendant;
  2. DVD 3 in the Beginner Series not only shows how to make a harness for a puffed heart, but I also talk about how to use this design for other irregular shaped items;
  3. Also in the Beginner Series, on DVD 6, you learn how to formulate and create a cage that will fit just about anything!
  4. Of course, you could sign up to take an on-line class with me and learn how to Lock That Rock! into a charm or pendant that could be used on a necklace, bracelet, cell phone charm or key chain!

Have fun with your rocks!!
