Agate donut - wire wrapped with cooper & brass wire, embellished with pearls, crystals and shell beads.
Very, very pretty. Love the colors.
Thx chris@312 - I really had fun making this pendant even thought it took several hours. Every time I wear it I receive comments about where I got it from - and people seem really surprised when I say I made it myself (that is people who don't know me well, those who know I'm always doing something arty crafty). I wll post some others at a later date.
It is truly magnificant.
Simply exquisite. I think it's the most pleasing 'donut wrap' I've ever seen.
I love the way the donut bead's colors emerge from behing and beneath the exquisite wire wrapping design. . . like there's a place of secrets from which this beautiful treasure emerged. Beautiful together.
A truly stunning piece...
This is, by far, the most interesting wrapped donut that I have seen! The way it is wrapped shows wonderful movement; something I try to get in my pieces, but I always seem to miss the mark :(. Excellent choice of material, and the off-center spirals give it just the right touch.
Thanks for sharing,
I never really knew what to do with donuts -- you nailed it! Beautiful!
Wow - this is the first time I have ever posted a picture of my wire wrapped pieces - usually only family and friends (and the odd stranger who has seen them when I have been wearing them) get to see what I consider something I just tinker with and enjoy doing. Thx guys for all your wonderful (yet overwhelming) comments. I just buy stones I like the look and feel (most important to me) and play around with them - nothing planned just go with the "flow" so as to speak.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year - 2010.
I just worked out how to get back onto this page.
Anyway - overwhelmed by your comments. Thx heaps.
