We have been doing wire work for about 10 years or better. I saw my first piece of wire wrapped jewelry at a Rock and Gem show. I fell in love with all the pendants and rings all wrapped in wire. I really haven't looked back since then.
Today my husband and I own a small retail bead/rock shop in our home town and we have just finished our first book which will be on Amazon.com and in our store, which we sell at all the Rock & Gem shows around our neck of the woods. Book name is " Making Memories"

In this tutorial you will learn some lapidary techniques that are very valuable when working with gem stones, and then we will show you how to use one piece of wire to secure the stone in a bezel setting. This tutorial is listed as Intermediate/Advanced, however; we have had beginners do this project and are sure you will love it! We are sure you will find this technique useful for many projects. The polishing pads are optional and are my secret to a professional finish. We have put a lot of work and thought into this tutorial and are sure you will benefit greatly from using this technique in a lot of your designs.
