Pattern Details





Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • coiling
  • making wire wrapped briolettes or bead clusters

Pattern Description:

This lesson teaches you how to make a light and airy filigree style pendant. You can easily change the look of this pendant by using different types of charms to hang from it, choosing different metals, or even adding beads in different places.

This lesson calls for 3 "dangles" to hang from the bottom of the pendant. For the pendant I'm making to illustrate the tutorial, I'm using wire wrapped briolettes. However, you can also use bead clusters or other charms as well.

If you need instructions or ideas for making charms for this pendant you can find a free tutorial for wrapping briolettes and bead clusters here:

This lesson is listed as being in the "intermediate" category, however I would say it falls in between "easy" and "intermediate". As such, this would be a great tutorial for jewelry artists who are transitioning between those two stages.


  • 14" 18g dead soft round wire
  • 12' 28g dead soft round wire
  • 1 4mm-6mm bead
  • 3 dangles to hang from the bottom of the pendant
  • 3 jump rings (for this pendant I am using jump rings with a 3mm inner diameter made of 18g wire. You may need a different size depending on the charms you are using)

You Will Also Need:

  • Chain nose pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • 6mm mandrel (or other suitable substitute)
  • 4mm mandrel (or other suitable substitute)
