These pendants remind me of the red rock formations found in the Southwest!
Dakota Stones gemstone pendants are full of unique colors and patterns you'll love showing off in your jewelry designs. Choose a pendant set and you'll have multiple gemstone pendants to use in your projects. Cheri shows off three different ways to spice up gemstone pendants with messy wrapped loops in these pieces. You can see more ideas for simple wire-wrapping in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of 20 gauge Antique Copper Artbeads Designer Wire and make a messy wrapped loop at the top of a pendant from the Dakota Stones orange impression jasper 11-piece ladder pendant set. Trim and tuck the ends.
Cut a two-foot length of both 20 gauge and 24 gauge Designer Wire and insert them into the hole of another pendant. Move the 24 gauge wire out of the way while you make a messy wrapped loop with the 20 gauge wire. Add three Swarovski 2mm faceted rounds in Crystal Golden Shadow to the 24 gauge wire and continue the messy wrap with this wire as you position the beads where you want them. Trim and tuck the ends.
Cut a two-foot length of 20 gauge wire and insert into the hole of a gemstone pendant. Make just a wrap at the top of the pendant, with one end of the wire sticking up from the wrap. Add the Swarovski 8mm faceted round in Crystal Golden Shadow above the wrap and then make a wrapped loop above the crystal. Create a messy wrap around the top of the gemstone pendant. Trim and tuck the ends.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
