Hi my lovely wire wrappers!
I’m back with a beautiful pendant piece for you to create.
If you have a precious crystal point stone in your possession, I believe my Wire-Wrapping Crystal Tower Point Pendant will hold it gracefully around your neck.

WIRE-WRAPPING CRYSTAL TOWER POINT TUTORIALS
Step 1 of 9
Firstly, measure your crystal point stone and take note of its length (fig. 1a).
Then, cut 23 inches length of 20-gauge silver coated copper wire and bend it in half (fig. 1b, 1c).
We start the framing process by making a circular bail at the middle with a stepped bail-making pliers as shown (fig. 1d, 1e).
Next, cross the wires and tape them in position with a masking tape as shown (fig. 1f, 1g).
Step 2 of 9
Secondly, make a 90-degree bend to the right (fig. 2a) on the wire at base of the crystal tip with a bend nose pliers.
Then, wrap the wire along the base (fig. 2b, 2c) and make another 90-degree bend upwards at the midpoint (fig. 2d, 2e).
You can cross-check with the circular bail as shown (fig. 2f).
Repeat the process on the other side (fig. 2g, 2h, 2i, 2j, 2k, 2l).
Step 3 of 9
After completing Step 2, the completed wire frame should look like as shown: front (fig. 3a), bottom (fig. 3b), back (fig. 3c).
Step 4 of 9
We give the silver wire frame a firm hold on the crystal stone by weaving.
Start a new length of 23-gauge copper wire and anchor it at the bottom frame as shown (fig. 4a, 4b).
Cut the excess wire from the anchor site with a wire cutter (fig. 4c).
Then, continue to weave the copper wire with a simple coil decoration on the silver wire frame (fig. 4d, 4e).
Cut the excess wire to finish up the design (fig. 4f).
Repeat the process on the other side with a similar decoration (fig. 4g, 4h, 4i, 4j).
Note: After cutting the wire, make sure it is close to frame and tugged at the back to avoid getting caught on surfaces.
Step 5 of 9
Moving on, start a new length of 23-gauge copper and make a coil on the midpoint of the silver wire frame (fig. 5a).
Then, proceed to make the same coil on the other frames (fig. 5b, 5c).
End the design by making a last coil on the starting frame (Jump to fig. 8f).
Step 6 of 9
We finish up the silver wire frame by bending the excess silver wires to the left direction (fig. 6a, 6b, 6c, 6d).
Make a square shape at the top base of the crystal point as shown (fig. 6e).
Then, wrap the excess wire around the top frame (fig. 6f).
Step 7 of 9
After that, cut out the excess wire (fig. 7a).
Complete the design by making an ending coil with a round nose pliers (fig. 7b, 7c).
Step 8 of 9
On the top end of the silver wire, continue to wrap it upwards towards the bail (fig. 8a).
Then, pull the wire downwards and make a curve as shown (fig. 8b).
Cut the excess wire (fig. 8c) and finish up with a coil design using round nose pliers (fig. 8d, 8e, 8f).
Step 9 of 9
Lastly, we make the final touch up for the pendant.
Use a long flat nose pliers and give the middle copper wire a minimal design (fig. 9a, 9b).
Repeat on the back side of the pendant (fig. 9c, 9d).
Finish up with polishing using a finest steel wire wool (fig. 9e, 9f).
