This is very nice, is the wire smooth and you wind the smaller wire around it?  And the round beads—how did you make that effect?

Yes there is a smooth wire underneath the wrapping. This technique is actually based on a basket making method called 'coiling'. It is hard for me to explain how to add the beads in just words alone. If you search online for how to coil a basket, you will also find some variations that explains how to add the beads.

I know of some wire tutorials that also teach this, if you email me I can give you more info if you really want to learn.

A "delicate" way to feature a great "rock"!
