.. and make a pendant!



What do you think? It's a present for a friend. I've got about 7kgs of buttons and beads to make into jewellery next to me and I scored 14 rolls of some heavier weight florists wire to make them with.

I love the organic nature of making them, building and wrapping the piece, adding dangles, crystals, chain and charms. It's very soothing to see the pieces become a whole.

EDIT: I took pictures of some of the other pieces I made.

















I'm still trying to decide which ones I do and don't like and why. Opinions?

I'll get a pic tomorrow if you're interested, but it's basically criss-crossed with wire and twisted round each of the pieces to give it stablility. After much experimentation I found you really need to use a heavier thicker wire than is usually used for jewellery making, to hold everything in place.

I'll be posting more pics of ones I've made tomorrow! I have a whole pile of neck pieces, pendants earrings and bracelets I've been making.
