There are so many colors in Mardi Gras impression jasper, so I picked out some small beads in matching colors to wire-wrap to the top of these gemstone pendants.
Wire-wrapping is a great way to showcase unique pendants like these Dakota Stones Mardi Gras impression jasper options. You can get creative and even incorporate smaller beads into your wirework. Cheri used Czech glass beads in these messy wraps. You can see more ideas for simple wire-wrapping in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a two-foot length of 20 and 24 gauge Copper Artbeads Designer Wire. Bring both wires into the hole of a Dakota Stones Mardi Gras impression jasper 17x43mm stick bead. Move the 24 gauge wire out of the way while you make a messy wrapped loop with the 20 gauge wire. Add each of the two Czech glass 7mm Hibiscus flower opaque royal blue with dark bronze finish beads to the 24 gauge wire as you wrap it around to place them to the front of the pendant. Trim and tuck the ends of the wires.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
