Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is a very advanced tutorial, you should have a good basic knowledge and understading of wirework and be able to form loops and coil wire, however detailed instruction and step by step photos are included

Pattern Description:

This tutorial shows you how to construct a large, layered frame, which allows you to set multiple beads of graduating sizes. You can use any curved bead as long as they increase gradually in size, to allow for a smooth shape to the pendant.

The ornate frame encases the beads and is the perfect way to showcase larger, heavier stones, due to the way they are securely held in place.

You can easily adapt the design for any number of beads, although this tutorial is based on using four.
