This tutorial teaches you to wrap a donut bead with wavy, serpent like wire work. This versatile design has many possible variations. By weaving the wires instead of wrapping them, adding beads, or changing the style of the curves you can create many different effects. The first pendant pictured is the one taught in the tutorial. The others are all variations of this technique.
