Sword Pendant Tutorial

Sword Pendant Tutorial

Basic Skills Necessary:

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

Pattern Description:

I am often inspired by music to create some rather interesting designs. In this case, I was inspired by a song about murder. Though the song makes references to a kitchen knife, I prefer more dramatic, midieval weapons. ;)

In this lesson you'll learn to make a pendant that looks like a sword. By altering the length and width of the blade you can also use the same technique to create a dagger.

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).
