Living here in Arizona is wonderful but it’s not just all about the beautiful weather, gorgeous scenery and that big blue sky! It’s also a place where we can hunt for amazing rocks, minerals and gemstones! Arizona is a haven for all of those.
Many of the rocks we find… sweet man will cut, polish and tumble. We also go to Rock and Gem Shows and buy some that we display in our home. I like to purchase colorful ones that I bring home and Wire Wrap them into pendants.
The wire wrapping I do is called the Cage Method. It’s simple and I can complete this wrap quickly. I enjoy adding them to my wardrobe.
Do you collect rocks? Or know anyone that does? Have you tried wire wrapping? I would love to know.
Thanks for visiting!

Then you understand!
You should see our collection!
Thanks for the visit.
When I was a kid I collected all kinds of rocks and I still do a bit. That’s a great collection you make there 🙂
Thank you Teri! When you are in AZ next you need to come over and see our collections! Soooooo many and they are even under lights! Lol!
Wow! Sounds like a plan.
Nancy, the pendants are gorgeous. I am sorry to say I have never collected rocks. Your collection is stunning. I was so glad to see your post, I was wondering about you this morning my friend!
Thanks for thinking of me. We had guests staying with us and just could not work on my blog until Tuesday morning. Then the rain along with no sun made for horrible lighting when taking photographs. Better late then never, right?
Happy Wednesday to you and enjoy the rest of your week! And thank you again for your sweet concern for me! Hugs! Or should I say elbow bumps!
Beautiful. One of the many things I like about the desert.
Thanks so much! They are fun to make and I love wearing them.
And yes… it’s another great aspect of living in the desert!
You are so clever Miss Nancy 🙂
Thank you… Miss Clare!
I love your creativity, Nancy. Your rocks and wiring are beautiful. Labradorite is one of my favourites. <3
It’s a beautiful rock!
Thank you for enjoying my jewelry!
Holy Wow Nancy, look at all that treasure you found, the stones are beautiful and the way you wrapped them to turn them into pendants is stunning! Do you ever participate in local art shows or sales, because these would be perfect…How much fun to find such wonderful stones right in your own back yard, and the way your husband polishes them…WOW! ❤️
I’m so happy that you saw these my creative friend! I have not participated in any art shows… Yet!
I make them and enjoy giving them as gifts.
I’m also learning a new technique but it involves gluing and that’s not my thing.
This method is fun and relaxing!
Thank you for the love! Happy week to you!
Well, they are just beautiful, you need an Etsy shop at least!!!
I may consider it! 😊
Great job with the wire wraps. I love rocks! Always looking for nice, unique rocks as we hike.
Thank you! And yes… you should see our Rock Gardens! 😄
Thanks for the visit!
Gorgeous! Do you sell them? I occasionally pick up a small rocks but have never polished them or done wire wrapping or made any kind of jewelry.
As of right now I make them for me. And a few friends!
It’s a rewarding past time!
Happy Day to you!
Those are so beautiful!!!!!!
Thank you! Have a great week!
Wow!!! These are just gorgeous, Nancy! the way you make them into pendants is too cool. You really could sell them as another commenter suggested! Thanks for sharing your talent with us! 🙂
Thank you Mackenzie! I’m so glad you enjoyed seeing them!
Enjoy your break!😊
What a fun and productive hobby! These are all gorgeous! I think I have a rock tumbler (somewhere) – I’ll have to hunt for a cool looking stone, polish it up and try the wrapping method. What a fun, NEW thing to do. Thanks for the inspiration!
This really is fun and so relaxing! There are many you tube videos that show this method!
Thank you for enjoying them along with me!
Wow…beautiful gem stones and love the jewelry you create from them. Thanks for sharing….hope all is well!
All is well here! Thank you for enjoying!
Your gemstone jewelry is gorgeous, but the exploration, discovery, and creation make them even more special.
I love the hunt! Thank you!
Beautiful creations Nancy!
Thank you Sweet Sue!
Wow, these are amazing. My daughter and I collect rocks, and we love to go rockhounding, but nothing like this! Truly beautiful pieces of jewellery you’ve made.
Thank you my friend! ☺️
They are so beautiful! Great idea having them in wire wrapping, they look so exclusive! I am into stone but mostly for bracelets. I have black onyx stones, jasper stones and opal. I would love to know more about rocks, the ones you have are stunningly beautiful.
Oh Indah it’s so good to hear from you! I am so sorry your Australian trip got canceled.
We love Rocks! You should see our yard! Happy day to you!
It take talent, patient, artistic eye… to design and make these beautiful jewelry.
Thank you for sharing with us, Nancy!
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoying my pendants!
