Tutorial 049:
Basket Weave Bezel

 

Level: Advanced

 

Wire wrappers have struggled with the eternal problem of how to wrap a bezel around a non-drilled stone. This lesson offers a solution which also solves an even trickier problem, to wrap a faceted point back stone. Although not easy to accomplish, faceted stones as small as 6mm have been successfully wrapped with this technique!

 

Materials for pendant:

  • One 15mm round un-drilled stone: a coin bead, cabochon, point-back crystal or point back faceted stone.
  • 12" 20ga soft or half hard round silver wire
  • 3 feet 28ga dead-soft silver wire
  • 15 1mm silver or colored seed beads
