TUTORIAL Wire Wrapping Banded Prong Cabochon Pendant Step by Step PDF Downloadable Pattern by Perfectly Twisted Jewelry DIY
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.
I have also created two free supplemental YouTube videos that will help you even more with measurement and prong creation and the links are included in the tutorial document. While you are at my Channel, you might also enjoy some of the other free wire wrapping techniques and patterns I offer there!

Perfect! excellent tutorial. Highly recommend
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!
very great tutorial thank you
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.
