When I was done with this wire wrapped sea horse this evening, I kept thinking that I would not be able to recreate or remake a similar seahorse. Partly because I spent a lot of time in forming the seahorse shape/frame. This is the most difficult part for me, shaping the wire to make it look like a seahorse.
More difficult when the whole seahorse frame is wire wrapped with one piece of wire.
Can you tell/see where the wire ends?
Coin pearl, seed pearls, colorful tourmaline, garnet, corals, Swarovski Crystal and peridot are the gemstones used.

I am quite happy with the outcome though. Maybe I should give it another try - a smaller seahorse :)
Happy weekend my dear readers.

The seahorse is beautiful Mei...I would guess the wire ends at the loop for the chain at the top of the head?
You make wire work look so very beautiful...

It's beautiful. Someday I'll be working on wire work.

I guess wire starts on seahorse neck, over the head and ends on tail. Do You draw down a skech and then do the wire frame?

:) Heather is correct, wire ends at the top of the head - the bail.
