Wire-wrapping really allows you to get creative with your components. I was able to layer two different pendants together along with some beads in this piece.
The pendant in this necklace is a unique creation made by wire wrapping two separate components together. Cynthia added color to the piece by adding seed beads and Czech glass fire-polished beads into the wire work. Try experimenting with different components to create your own take on this fabulous pendant. For more wire-working inspiration, check out this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a 12-inch piece of 26 gauge Artbeads Designer Wire in Antique Copper. Place the loop of the Nunn Design antique copper-plated pewter inverted tear drop open pendant between the stringing holes of the Nunn Design antique copper-plated brass long open diamond wire frame pendant. Bring your wire through one of the stringing holes and wrap it around the loop of the tear drop pendant. Coil the wire around the loop several times until you reach the other side. Bring the wire through the stringing hole of the diamond wire frame on this side and wrap again. Trim and tuck the ends of your wires.
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!
