Weaving Wednesday - Larimar

Here are a few photos of my how to process working with copper and a lovely Larimar stone.

Here is the finished piece.

I started out with a simple chevron style stitch on five base wires, adding seed beads on one side of the point.

 I repeated this until I had enough to wrap completely around the stone.

I then pulled the two sides together and wrapped four wires with a figure eight weave to complete the bail.

 I took the remaining wires and did an assortment of two two stitches and a three three stitch to complete the access on the top and bottom as well as to encircle the bail to give it a finished look.

 Finally a bath of Liver of Sulfur gives it a nice rich finish.
