Red Jasper, or Red Agate Wire Wrapped Pendant
This is either a Red Jasper, or Red Agate gemstone. I think it is Jasper, but am not sure. Whatever it is, it is quite lovely. I used the cage technique, to wire wrap the gemstone. I have posted the link for the tutorial for the cage technique, it is available in the archives. It is one of the easier wire wrapping techniques to learn, especially for odd shaped stones, such as this one. I used colored, soft and very pliable craft wire, and the results are lovely. Wire wrapping is still very new to me, and I continue to learn.
