Beach Glass, Wire Wrapped Necklace

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you don't have beach glass you can use a purchased or found stone or pendant as the focus piece. Find beads that match in color and/or style and let yourself explore the way the piece feels as you put it together. Trust your instincts as you create. And don't sweat the wire wrapping! Messy is usually better and more interesting! Just have fun!

I love the addition of the beads above your pendant - it really makes that whole section of the necklace stand out.

Thank you! I wanted to add something to make it special and these beads and shells seemed to do the trick.
