Measure the perimeter of the stone. Mine is around 6.5 cm.
Wrap the first base wire away from you a few times to secure.
Wrap the upper base wire towards you 2 times then wrap the lower base wire away from you 4 times. Repeat the process until the length is the same perimeter length of the stone.
Finish wrapping for the bezel.
My bezel length is around 6.5 cm.
Slightly curve the middle bezel then shape the bezel according to the cabochon shape.
Place the stone inside the wire frame then shape the wire as needed.
Wrap a few times the two back base wires with the 26ga wire on the right (the short one) then cut it & wrap the two front base wires with the 26 ga wire on the left (the one in the spool).
To close the cabochon frame, wrap a few times around all 4 base wires.
Wrap the two front-base wire. Wrap away from you the bottom wire two times then two times towards you for the upper wire.
Push the bail to the back of the stone. I use a screwdriver to help me shaping the bail, then wrap to one of the base wire a few times to secure.
While the stone facing front, use the left base wire to wrap the bail a few times, curve the end so it won't poke then cut the thin wire from the spool.
Coil the last base wire for around 3 cm length.
Push the coil until it touch the bail then cut the remaining base wire.
With the chain nose plier, create a very small loop then continue to create a spiral using the nylon plier. Bring the spiral to the front of the stone.
Cut the last two base wire at the back of the stone then curve it so it won't poke.
