I have featured some of Gloria's (Domestic Diva Online) wire work tutorials before (see links below). They are relatively easy to do and at the same delivers a contemporary touch.  Her faux amber caged wire wrapped pendant tutorial can be used with many drilled gemstone nuggets.  I like how she wire wraps her bead sideways.

You can always adapt the frame size to fit your bead.

The frame is made with 16 G wire. The thick wire looks better!  If you have trouble working with this gauge, use soft wire. But remember you have to work harden with a hammer to make sure the frame stays in shape.

She used half round wire which gives the design a subtly different look as well as makes the wrapping a little easier.
