Basic Skills Necessary:

  • wire twisting

Pattern Description:

A lot of variations can be created using the same jewelry techniques. Here is one design for a necklace where the technique has also been used to create a bracelet and a pair of earrings.

In this tutorial, you'll again master the art of wire twisting and create a uniquely gorgeous piece of wire twisted necklace. Create branch-like wires with clusters of pearls and teardrop beads using the wire twisting technique. The pearls and teardrops used add glamour and you can easily manipulate and adjust the position of the branches to your liking. The design for this piece is endless as you can create 3 or more variations using different types and sizes of beads. There is no specific number of twisting needed to create the necklace. You can twist as many times as you like. Doing so will also create variations to the length and look of the necklace.

The tutorial is catered for intermediate, but anyone who loves to learn this wirework technique can also follow the tutorial. It has in-depth instructions and ultra-clear, close-up photos at each step. Additionally, you can ask me question you have on the tutorial. No more getting stuck and frustrated on a confusing or just plain inaccurate pattern.
