Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic wire wrapping skills

Pattern Description:

One of the easiest ways to add interest to a wire-wrapped piece is to attach small decorative charms.

In the examples shown in this page, small sterling silver charms were added using coiled extensions, created from a coiled bezel frame. This technique allows you to place the charms in the precise location desired.

Although the tutorial and materials describe how to make the pendant (first two images), charms & extensions can be applied to a variety of different designs.
