Working with Wire Episode 4: How to Wrap Pendants-Top Drilled

Part Number:VIDEO-0122

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.

Great idea and wonderful hints on working with a larger pendant. Will try this while at my bench this weekend. Thanks to my niece for giving me a gift certificate to Auntie's.

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.

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.

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.
