Pattern Details

Category:

Jewelry

Type:

Pendant

Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Coiling with wire
  • Weaving with wire (free tutorial available. see description for link)

Pattern Description:

This lesson teaches you how to create a beautiful, lacy frame to capture a special bead. The swirls can be shaped to create almost any shape you like. In the pendants pictures, they resemble abstract hearts, however, you can also make them round, oval, square, or any other shape you like.

This lesson calls for a bead that is 18x25mm, however, you can use almost any size bead you like that is drilled lengthways. Just keep in mind that the length of wire you will need will vary for differently sized beads.


This will be easier to make if you already have practice weaving with wire. You can find a free tutorial for that on my web-site. http://www.gailavira.com/tutorials (scroll to the bottom of the page to find the free tutorials).

Materials:

  • 26" 20g dead soft round wire
  • 151/2' 28g dead soft round wire
  • 18mmX25mm bead (drilled lengthways)

You Will Also Need:

  • Chain nose pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Flat nose pliers
  • Ruler
  • Marker
