Learn to make this beautiful Wire Wrapped Prong Cabochon Pendant, using traditional wire wrapping techniques. In this tutorial, you will learn how to use grid paper to Measure for and Plan for prong placement on a symmetrical, oval cabochon. You will also learn how to create the actual prongs along the wire, where they belong and then how to assemble all of that into a gorgeous finished pendant with elegant swirls and curls for the bale design.
I have also created two free supplemental YouTube videos that will help you even more with measurement and prong creation and the links are included in the tutorial document. While you are at my Channel, you might also enjoy some of the other free wire wrapping techniques and patterns I offer there!
