Cubic zirconia fan wire wrapped necklace is finally finished!

By on Saturday, February 06, 2010 7 Comments

Remember the tutorial on how to use large bail forming pliers? The design I showed as an example of how to use this great tool was not complete at the time.  I actually didn't have the right sized sterling silver chain on hand. So I couldn't show the finished piece.  Well, here it is finally complete and in my Etsy store!  (This is a Life Collection piece where 100% of net proceeds will go to cancer research).


The faceted cubic zirconia was such an unusual shape and I have to admit it took me a while to come up with a design.  Sometimes, designs come quickly. At other times, it pays to let your subconscious mull over possibilities.

    Yes those cubics are an unusual shape...but popular...when I went to choose some they were out of stock!

    The design idea was worth the wait Peart...I know what you mean about how a design comes to mind...often I will wake up with one in my head...not sure why but what ever works!!! :0)

  2. Wow, this is a really amazing design. I love how the complexity of the wirework only heightens the focus on the cubic zirconia. Very beautiful!
