Wire Wrapping Grooved Stones

One of the things I love the most about Wire Wrapping stones is how many variations there are. From the standard wire wrap, which is where I began, to free form wrapping, to the most complicated weaves, wire wrapping cabochons can be as simple or as hard as you make it.

For the last few years I have been wire wrapping my stones with the groove wrap. I personally love this style, as it gives me several options, but the biggest benefit in my opinion is the guarantee I can put on all my work. Not to mention that I have arthritis in my hands and it makes it much easier to hold on to the cabs while I work. Some might say that I am cheating, but, say what they will, I have done all the forms of wire wrapping and find this to be the best for me and what I do. And, our feedback has been wonderful.

We carry groove-able cabochons in our Etsy shop as well as the Tutorials needed to get you started. Come check them out!
