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.

This lady writes wonderful tutorials and always has! She helped me get started years ago. I bought this to help me learn more about prong settings and of course, it is wonderfully done. Thanks so much, Izzy!

Great tutorial! I tried it with different beads and they came out nicely. These beads made them larger so I was still deciding if I was going to finish as pendants or earrings.
