Designer Tips

  • Cut two 16-18" pieces of 24-gauge wire. It is better to have plenty of wire for wire-wrapping the pendants, depending on how much of the crystal you want to cover.
  • For step-by-step instructions with images, for wire-wrapping the crystals, check out the Rings & Things Blog post: How to Wire-Wrap a Briolette.
  • Use your thumb to guide the wire to keep the wire tight.
  • Once wrapped, darken the wire with liver of sulfur.
