Silver wire and LOS - Experiment 1.0

Yesterday, I received some HH silver wire that I ordered on etsy. I am very into trying different patinas with Liver of Sulphur (LOS) right now and I thought it would be fun to try it on this wire. However, I know almost nothing about wire jewelry (I am really into assemblage jewelry using all sorts of fun little vintage, gemstone, or metal trinkets that I discover.)

I am very new to the whole LOS and finer metals aspect of jewelry. If anyone reads this and has tips or advice I would love to talk to you! I am the only person I know that is into this sort of thing, so it is difficult to find help :(

I tried wrapping a stone with the wire, but I felt like it came out sloppy. Maybe I am being too much of a perfectionist. Is there a particular technique to wrapping the top of a stone to make it a pendant?
