Double Duty Bail – Wire Working Techniques

From Brenda:

How can you not be wowed by this Preciosa crystal focal in all its minimal, yet amazing gorg-iosity! (LOL!)! (Reminds me of a beader’s peyote stitch, although the stitchers I know would probably laugh me off the jewelry-island for saying so!)  Then, I devised this surprisingly simple pendant as a frame, but if you look closer, you see a little extra loop-de-loop that presents the light-filled lovely with just enough “forward face” to catch  your viewers eye and hold it tight!]
