Who is this project for? Women

What materials did you use? Gold-filled chain, wire, jump rings, and toggle clasp. Genuine garnet faceted beads.

What are you most proud of? The components and beads are tiny, so they look delicate and feminine resting just at and slightly below the collar bone. The smaller one is only just over 3/4" wide, and the larger one is just 1 1/8" wide.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're concerned about cost, make this in sterling silver instead. If this is your first time wire wrapping, I recommend practicing with craft wire or copper wire and inexpensive beads before moving onto silver or gold and pricier gemstones. Have fun creating!

How do you find the patterns?

Hi Linda, Thanks for asking, but I don't work with patterns. I just create. I'm not yet disciplined enough to pay attention to exact quantities and measurements of materials, so I can't really write-up my own pattern to share. But I'm working on that skill and hope to share my own project patterns sometime in the future. :)
