I use the back of a hatchet as an anvil, a ball peen hammer, a file and a few pliers to accomplish this setting.

  1. I love these dramatic, uncluttered wrap settings, Dennis. The smooth, bold shapes complement the stones without covering them up too much.

  2. Dennis,
    Beautiful designs! They give a whole new and refreshed meaning to wire wrapped. Thank you for sharing!

  3. I love this. Very eye catching.

  4. Your story is as amazing as your style of wire wrap. Love the dogs. I have saved your tut. link. I love the clean lines, contrasting color of metal with stone.

  5. Dennis… your designs are always gorgeous, and you so kindly share your technique. I have your tutorials as well as a piece that you made. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration!

  6. Beautiful work! Love your creative settings!

  7. I just love, love your pendants. Gorgeous! So you have a tutorial?

    Dennis Hardy is the best! I have a few pieces of his works of art. Great job, Dennis (and Kat if she did the photography)!

  9. It’s a very strong, fluid, modern look. Beautiful!
