Red Jasper Pendant

Just a little weaving, as I practice and test designs for a wonderful rutile quartz piece which is waiting for the muse to speak. This one is a nice little tumbled red jasper, wrapped in copper, of course. A 16g wire goes once around the stone and forms the base of the bale, which is woven with 24g. Two 18g wires snuggle on either side of the 16g and perform the entertainment. 1-5/8 inches tall and 1 inch at the widest point.
