PATTERN DETAILS

Every year I like to do a simple, Christmas-themed wire project. This year I found these super fun, very inexpensive star-shaped pony beads and they obviously were just dying to be at the top of a tree! The tutorial is for the pendant shown, but instructions are included for an alternate version you can use as a tree ornament or earrings! It's like three tutorials in one. With this technique you can very quickly create a simple, shiny, playful little tree that you can give as a gift, or wear anywhere this holiday season. Using only a single wire and following the the accompanying close-up, sharp photos and diagrams, you'll be admiring your new pendant (or ornament, or earrings!) in no time. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use pliers. Manipulate wire with your hands.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 1 star-shaped bead with a vertical hole large enough for 18ga wire
  • Chainnose pliers or Bent nose pliers
  • Bailmaking pliers

I'm a self-representing Cape Breton wire artist with a dozen years of experience writing clear instructions for online, adult learners. I love curriculum development almost as much as I love making jewellery! The two are combining beautifully with my online tutorials. Through all the art forms I've explored - painting, digital art, clay sculpting, web design, paper art, and calligraphy - my love of colour has guided me to new discoveries. Now, over a decade of self-teaching has produced my distinctive, spontaneous style of wire-sculpted art jewellery. My pieces weave non-tarnish wire around a wide range of stimulating materials. The warmth of semi-precious gemstones, the unlimited, variegated colours of firepolished glass, and the fascinating textures & history of beach glass all lend their own character to each one-of-a-kind creation. In my steampunk-inspired line, the patina of vintage, salvaged materials contrasts sharply with the bright & modern designs in the surrounding wire. I love to create and I love to teach and share with others. I hope I can help you find a new technique or pattern you'll love!
