Turn that small polished or irregular stone gathering dust on a shelf into a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art.
With some simple tools, a few feet of wire, and some basic wire wrapping techniques, you will learn how to create a decorative freeform cage pendant to hold your special treasure. This technique can be used with polished stones, small carved figurines, small geode crystal segments, sea shells, marbles, even a found object such as an antique finial-shaped perfume bottle stopper.
You?ll be provided with an illustrated tutorial featuring step-by-step instructions, so when you go home you can create more pendants. Through practice, you?ll be able to adapt the design to suit your own style. The possibilities are practically endless.
Wire materials will be provided. Please bring own your special stone, or shop our fantastic selection of stones, mineral specimens and more to find that perfect piece for your creation. $40
