I’m keeping my wraps as tight as possible (fig. 19a, 19b, 19c), and then move past the third bead (fig. 19d, 19e).
Bring wire up the back and down (fig. 20a, 20b). Add a decorative swirl (fig. 20c, 20d) and bring wire down the back of the frame (fig. 20e).
Wrap a couple times then send wire to back. Cut excess wire and tuck ends in (fig. 21a, 21b, 21c).
That’s it! – Your piece is complete!
At this point, you can add patina by using liver of sulfur – this REALLY brings out the detail!
