I finally got back to wire-wrapping some more stones and thought I'd post them.



Copper wire-wrapped agate of some kind.



Sterling silver square wire; I have no clue what kind of stone this is.



Sterling silver square wire; some kind of moss agate.



Sterling silver square wire; granite

You do lovely work Nárrína. My one quibble is that your square wire is not always "on the square" as they say. I know it's hard to do but it is really important for a professional look. One thing that I find helps me is to use a small length of wire at a time. Also, you might consider using half round wire for your side wraps. It is much easier to control and looks fabulous.

Thank you! (Especially for the advice. Sometimes the square wire behaves itself and sometimes it doesn't and it's been driving me nuts!)

Awesome work as always Narrina. Where do you all get your half round and square wire and is it available in less expensive materials? I would like to use some less expensive materials at first so I can get used to using the different wire shapes.

Thank you! The copper I used is actually just regular round wire. the Square sterling silver wire came from Monsterslayer (they have half round as well along with many other wire shapes). They also have half round red brass. I'm sure you could find the various other wire shapes in copper and brass at Rio Grande.
