Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is an intermediate tutorial, it would be helpful to already know the basics of wirework, for example forming a loop, however detailed instruction and step by step photos are included

Pattern Description:

Cirrus is the name for wispy clouds and as this was the inspiration for this pendant I thought it would be a perfect name.
This lesson teaches you to form a 3 piece frame, which is hammered to add both interest and strength to the wire. Beads in contrasting colours are added to the frame as well as a wrapped briolette. I have included tips for a little trick I use for wrapping briolettes so the ends are hidden, creating a strong and neat wrapping.
