I don't make lamp work beads but I do buy them from artisans who do. These art beads are beautiful and deserve just the right sort of design to highlight them. Shown here are some ideas of how to wire wrap a pendant using just 1-2 focal beads be they lamp work or other kinds of beads.
Lynde VonHatten of Cozy Sister's droplet pendant tutorial (above) is simply long and elegant! The design suits a side drilled bead at the bottom.
Sherrie Lingerfelt's diamond shaped pendant tutorial frames a special focal bead. The design uses square wire which adds to the contemporary look.
Julie Sigmund of Jewlie Beads shared her copper wire pendant tutorial on Lampworker. It is worth a look because of the way she adds and wires in the bail part.
Those of you who are advanced wireworkers should check out Szilvia Boda's lovely wire wrapped pendant on Deviantart. Her design used a large lentil bead - something many lamp workers make.
