Freeform Wrap Tutorial by tanyquil Freeform Wrap Tutorial by tanyquil
A few people had asked how I do my wraps, and I figured I'd upload a quick tutorial...taking reference photos with only one free hand is tricky.

Although you don't have to, I would love you forever if you link me in the description if you use my tutorial to make something. Also, link me what you make because I want to see it!

DISCLAIMER: If I were using a smooth symmetrical stone, I would use different techniques. But since its a rough, tumbled stone, I prefer to use a more 'off the top of my head and only measure when necessary' approach.

EDIT: Fixed the font issue, hopefully.
'Download' at your own risk, its a big file!

Curious. Where do you get the stones?

I got those ones from local rock and gem shops. I usually wrap polished cabochons now though, and I get those from a few etsy shops!

Oh gotcha thanks! I've been wanting to try to make wire stone jewelry but wasn't sure how to start or where to get supplies
