When I found out my two dear friends, Dorian & Eric, were planning to tie the knot on Halloween, I knew just what I had to do to prepare for this Halloween wedding. Serendipitously, I had recently ordered 15 creepy skeleton cameos from Cameo Jewelry Supply. I chose two – one each for the bride and groom.
My choices for wire wrapping were copper, brass, or stainless steel. I knew stainless would look best for the bride’s cameo. Stainless steel has much to recommend it as it doesn’t tarnish. But it’s a beast to use for wrapping. Also the oval shape of the cameos vs a guitar pick shape is a bit more difficult to wrap. I was nervous. It took some time, but I finally beat the wrap into submission. I’m pretty pleased with the result.
I tackled the groom’s cabochon next. I used stainless steel for the foundation wire, but wrapped with brass. Given that the brass is more compliant, this wrap was a bit easier.
Dan & I will be traveling to Kansas on Tuesday. I can’t wait to present these pendants to the happy couple.
