Wire Wrapped Pendant

This is my first attempt at wire wrapping - I thought it turned out pretty well! 

I used all sterling silver wire with a coin pearl center and two freshwater pearl dangles. I oxidized the silver to give it an antique finish. Measures approx. 1" wide and 1 & 3/4" tall.

The wire wrapping was definitely fun to do - and more tiring on the hands than I expected! But now I'm inspired to try out some more wire projects.

For this piece I used:

 24g sterling silver wire 
two sterling silver headpins
coin pearls
  small freshwater pearl beads 
misc small silver beads


What do you think?
