This is one of the easiest ways to wrap a stone bead into a pendant. You can create any design in the front.
The thickness of wire depends on the size of the hole – it is advisable to use the thickest wire that goes through.
First decide and create the wire design that you would like. If you want to hammer it, do it now.
Then bend the wire in 90 degrees and form the design over the bead. Measure the distance from the side of the bead to the center of the hole and bend again. Adjust the wire as needed.
Once it is at a desired fit, insert into the bead and wire wrap a loop at the top of the bead as the bale.
