Carnelian – “Cradled Ember”

I have a huge backlog of gemstones to wrap. I always buy more stones than I can wrap in a given time period. =w=

Anyway, carnelian is a reddish-brown stone, and copper seemed to suit it the best. I tried a slightly new style here, opting for more a pieces of longer wire strands., I had also recently bought some garnet Swarovski crystals, so I added some to the piece. What do you think of the changes that I’ve made?

Since I had no copper chain or findings lying around, I had to make my own set. I also tried using the hammer to flatten the findings, but well… Let’s just say it really shows that I’m a beginner. XD

P1000482Materials: Carnelian stone, 0.80mm copper wire, two Garnet Swarovski bicone beads, (optional) yellow seed beads
