Donna has been making wire jewelry since 2007. During that time she has had several tutorials published in Wirework Magazine, and in the book "Wire Style 2". Donna specializes in weaving and coiling to add texture and interest to the pieces she makes, while striving to maintain the structural integrity of the work to create functional, wearable pieces of art.

This lesson teaches you how to make a light and airy filigree style pendant. You can easily change the look of this pendant by using different types of charms to hang from it, choosing different metals, or even adding beads in different places.
This lesson calls for 3 "dangles" to hang from the bottom of the pendant. For the pendant I'm making to illustrate the tutorial, I'm using wire wrapped briolettes. However, you can also use bead clusters or other charms as well.
If you need instructions or ideas for making charms for this pendant you can find a free tutorial for wrapping briolettes and bead clusters here: http://www.gailavira.com/tutorials
This lesson is listed as being in the "intermediate" category, however I would say it falls in between "easy" and "intermediate". As such, this would be a great tutorial for jewelry artists who are transitioning between those two stages.
