Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Make loops
  • Make spirals
  • Make a wire frame
  • Handle long pieces of thin wire

Pattern Description:

My inspiration for this glamorous necklace came while visiting an antique fair. I came across a stall selling hundreds of glass paperweights bursting with tiny flowers encased in a small glass dome and I loved the delicate 3D look of those pretty blooms.

The necklace is made up of 5 leaves of decreasing sizes. The centre leaf is the largest and the two end ones are the smallest.

The leaves themselves are perfectly achievable if you are an intermediate beginner and lend themselves to making a pendant or earrings. The links require more experience but require a bit of practice and a careful following of the steps.

Materials:

  • 4m (13ft) of 0.8mm(20 gauge) Round Wire
  • 8.2m (27ft) of 0.32 (28 gauge) Round Wire
  • 5 8-9mm rice pearls
  • 30 5mm metal daisy spacers
  • Approx 20grams (a small tube) of assorted size 11 seed beads.
  • TOOLS:Chain nose pliers Wire cutters Flat nose pliers Round nose pliers Nylon jaw pliers Hammer and block Ring mandrel Permanent marker (Sharpie)
