Sometimes it is worth revisiting a tried and true technique.  Vietnamese wire artist, Lan Anh Pham, did just that with the classic wire cage spiral method. This is usually used to capture beads with loops at both ends so each unit can be connected together - this is often used in a bracelet design.

She demonstrates this wire method with her simple elongated earrings design with just a single captured bead. This design will go together with a matching bracelet. Note : thick wire looks better than thinner wire!

Here is her bracelet tutorial :

However, it is her pendant version which is striking.  She just added a touch of wire weaving to ensure the small bead does not fall out. The wire weaving stabilizes the wire cage.

Her ring version is also a standout!
