Working with Wire Episode 4: How to Wrap Pendants-Top Drilled
Item Id: VIDEO-0122 review 4 Review(s) Write a Review Write a Review


In this newest addition to our wire series, Episode 4, we answer the question "How am I suppose to attach this to my necklace? The pendant has a hole drilled in the top but doesn't have a bail". So for those of you that have asked this question, and using a simple jump ring isn't what you had in mind, here is your answer as we provide you an easy and quick way to wrap this kind of pendant. Many gemstone pendants come drilled in this manner making things a little difficult if you have not mastered this skill.

Rating Wire wrap, episode 4 Wrap pendants-top drilled
I found the audio on this video difficult to hear/understand part of the time. The pendant looks lovely, When I finish mine, I will make a tiny circle at the end of the loop to ensure non-snagging on clothes. Overall, this was a good idea for top-drilled pendants and is easy to do.

Rating Simple to do
The directions were easy to follow and enhanced the plain pendent. I had a hard time getting my wire to stay close to the edge of the pendent. It wanted to separate when hanging on the beads.

Rating Easier way
Beautiful necklace. But why would a person wrap the pendant after stringing the necklace? It is far easier to wrap first and string second. Not only is the string of beads not in the way, but the loop on the bail can be much smaller and neater.

Nice concept....I'm just wondering about people getting clothes, etc. caught into the loose wire curls. Otherwise....GREAT!! Like the pendant.

Questions and Answers
Q: I have stones that I would like to wire wrap and use as pendants--but they are not drilled at all. What can I with these-must they be drilled? If so, how do I accomplish this without breaking the stone? Is there a special tool or drill bit to do this? Thank you so much for any help you can give me, Your site looks like a good place to get supplies which I cannot do locally, The wire I have gotten does not work well when finishing a beeded necklace oe beacelet--it is too stiff to work well in making a crimped loop for fastening. I need advice on this too. I have gotten so frustrated that I gave up. I have problems with my eyes and could not deal with this added aggravation. I desperately need a hobby that I enjoy since I live alone, cannot drive very far and have chrinic pain and severe depression at times. Hope I have not rambled too much and gone too far past the original subject for you to give me some help.
