What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to redo pieces that you've had for a while. Old pieces can often be repurposed into something beautiful.

What an eye-catcher! Oh, yes, I've been known to take something apart because I have a better use in mind for some of the components -- especially some of my early beading efforts.

Amazing wire wrapping work - the look is amazing and so powerful!! I have taken things apart, too - they seem to work much better the second time around.

Thanks. Sometimes I think we have an idea that doesn't quite work out. Luckily, most of the time, it just evolves into something else even better!

This is a beautiful piece! Love it! Is it hard to make?

Thank you. It's freeform, so you'd just start with the wire wrapped pendant and add wire and beads from there.

if something i make keeps coming back to me or i can't decide on how i like it, i will take it apart and use the components for something else. this turned out to be a great idea in that way. i love carnelian and i was pulled into the random design and wandered around in it. what a great focal.
