Instructions:


  1. Wire wrap the pendant using the German Square Wire as demonstrated in the video "How to Wire Wrap a Pendant-Top Drilled.".
  2. Attach a wire wrapped bead to the pendant; see "How to Wire Wrap a Bead video for instructions.
  3. Cut 11 inches of 49 strand wire crimping on the lobster claw clasp.
  4. String on half the necklace, see photograph for beading pattern, string on the pendant and then complete the rest of your beading pattern.
  5. Cut approximately 7 inches of 20 gauge Artistic wire and make a small loop using your small end of the bail making pliers.
  6. On the opposite side, use your larger bail making plier and make a second loop bringing the loop past the finished circle so that it makes another layer of wire around the larger loop.
  7. Using your flush cutter, cut the wire and secure the end.
  8. Take your strung necklace and string on a crimp, place wire through the smaller hole of the element you just made, back through the crimp and pull all access wire through so that no wire is showing.
  9. Crimp and feed a few inches back into the beads and trim off excess to complete the necklace.
