Student Work: Wire Wrapped Found Object Pendants

Thank to you all the wonderful attendees from Saturday's Wire Wrapped Found Object Workshop at Catylator Makerspace!

Wire wrapping a found object or a keepsake treasure is no easy task. Whether it may be a stone or a seashell, each individual piece has unique characteristics that may make them difficult to transform into wearable, functional pendants. Slippery-smoothness, craggy details or even odd sizes may stop some jewelers in their tracks and leave them asking, "What do I do now?"

In my 3-hour Wire Wrapped Found Object Workshop at Catylator Makerspace, we answered that question and more, transforming a host of citrine stones, antique buttons, vintage earrings, shells and river rocks into AMAZING works of art!

DIY: How to Gold Leaf Seashells...the Easy Way

Gold leaf highlights are quickly becoming one of the hottest trends in summer jewelry. You can find them everywhere from pendants to druzy earrings, even surrounding those lovely, miniature agate geodes we love so much on Etsy:
