Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Make loops
  • Make spirals
  • Make a wire frame
  • Handle long pieces of thin wire

Pattern Description:

My inspiration for this glamorous necklace came while visiting an antique fair. I came across a stall selling hundreds of glass paperweights bursting with tiny flowers encased in a small glass dome and I loved the delicate 3D look of those pretty blooms.

The necklace is made up of 5 leaves of decreasing sizes. The centre leaf is the largest and the two end ones are the smallest.

  • 8.2m (27ft) of 0.32 (28 gauge) Round Wire
  • 5 8-9mm rice pearls
  • 30 5mm metal daisy spacers
  • Approx 20grams (a small tube) of assorted size 11 seed beads.
  • TOOLS:Chain nose pliers Wire cutters Flat nose pliers Round nose pliers Nylon jaw pliers Hammer and block Ring mandrel Permanent marker (Sharpie)
