Pattern Description:

In this lesson you will learn to make a wire wrapped seed bead frame for a bead. Although this tutorial is made for a pendant, it can easily be adapted to make earrings, bracelet focals, and many other types of jewelry.

The pendant in the first image is the one taught in the tutorials. The rest of the images are variations of the techniques in this lesson.

Although this lesson is marked as "intermediate" it's still a very easy pendant to make. It would be a great project for someone who is looking to move up from the beginner level.
