Learn how to use simple materials and turn them to a beautiful insect. The fly pendant is a very versatile design as you can come up with your own design by altering the technique. You can alter the size of the pendant, add more beads or position the spirals differently to come up with your own unique design. While I was creating the fly, I imagine I can turn it to a beetle, octopus or simply any pendant that is decorated with beautiful spirals. The tutorial comes with pictorial step by step guides. It is catered to students with some knowledge of wire work. For beginner, you can refer to appendix for detailed steps of making a spiral.
