Finally I got to make a netted bezel cab based on Delia Stone's tutorial. I have tried it before but it was not very successful. No picture was taken for this failed project. This time around it worked. I use 27ga stainless steel wire for the net. This cab is part of a bracelet with Goldstones. See more pix below.

Other wire wrapped components of the bracelet (top pix) and the finished bracelet (bottom pix) on William's wrist.

Wow.. very beautiful! So intricate. :) I wonder how long did you take to complete it?

And also, where can we get stainless steel wire? Is it easily found in Malaysia?

Thanks Waiyee! Took me few hours to complete it :) I think about 5-6 hrs.
You can find stainless steel wire at tackle (fishing) shop and yes its quite easy to find in Malaysia. The only problem is if you can find all the sizes or not. Some shops have more sizes than others.

The bracelet looks great! You certainly did a good job on the needle lace. I like the mix of wrapping styles in the bracelet.
