What inspired this design? My daughter gave me a wire-wrapping book. It had an ugly design made with a wire hoop earring, and I thought I could improve with the shell focal.
How did it come together? For example, did you plan it out or did it define itself once you began working? I just began working after drilling the focal. This was my very first experience with wire wrapping.
