The other day I decided to take the (expensive) leap and buy some gold wire. I bought a few feet of square, and a few feet of half round.
I tend to want to use my new wire as soon as I get it, and this is actually the 3rd piece I did with the new wire, but the first that was mainly gold.
In this picture I have already lined up all of the wires and bound them together.. then shaped them to the stone and bent a couple of wires out for the cab to sit on.
I don't always do the swoops, but I had originally planned the swirl being enough to hold the cab down.. and it wasn't, so I took two more wires and made a close swoop.
And that is how the mojave turquoise mini was born.
Thanks for reading :)
