Donna has been making wire jewelry since 2007. During that time she has had several tutorials published in Wirework Magazine, and in the book "Wire Style 2". Donna specializes in weaving and coiling to add texture and interest to the pieces she makes, while striving to maintain the structural integrity of the work to create functional, wearable pieces of art.

In this lesson I will teach you how to make a unique and extremely versatile woven wrap for a donut bead. The instructions show a very basic version of the pendant, however there is no end to the ways to alter this design.
Step by step images and instructions in this lesson are for the base design only (the turquoise, copper and coral pendant shown above). This version of this lesson also gives tips for making the variations shown in the other photos.
