Primary Technique: Jewelry Making

Occasion/Theme: Fall

Easy

Notes

Materials:

  • 20 gauge wire – 6″
  • Accent bead
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Wire cutters

Instructions:

  1. Measuring 1 1/2″ from one end of the wire, bend the wire around something large enough for your pendant piece.  Crimp the wrapped wire just below where they meet.
     
  2. You just made the loop to go through the hole on your pendant piece.  Slide the pendant piece on the loop.
     
  3. Grasp the loop on the outside of the pendant piece using the round nose pliers.   Bend the short wire tail to the side and wrap it around the long wire tail.
     
  4. Slide on and accent bead.
     
  5. Starting just above the bead, wrap the long tail around a pencil (or anything you have handy) twice.  At the end of the second wrap, cross the wire over to the other side of the first wrap and wrap the tail around between the double loop and the bead.
