Lately, I've been seeing a lot of cute and simple wired jewelry pendants around in stores so I thought I would try to see if I could make my own for a fraction of the price. So I made a quick run to Joann's Crafts store for some materials and tools so I could get started which you can also get a Michael's too.
Rounded Tip Pliers
Small Jump Rings
First step for me was thinking of what I wanted to do which was the initial "R" for my name. After I knew what I wanted to make, I cut enough wire using scissors then I started with the edges using my rounded tip pliers and worked my way to make the shape until I was finished. There are no real steps it's basically just bending the wire as you go along to make the design you want. I just went with the flow of the wire and did my own thing until I felt it looked good as shown below so do what you want and wired...
|Thin wires in gold and silver...|
|Use rounded tip pliers to twist and bend your wires...|
|Twist ends towards which ever side you want so the edges are curled...|
|Voila!!! The edge is curled and now I can finish working on the rest of the letters shape...|
|Continue twisting the wire until you get your end product which for me was "R" and I made it in gold and silver...|
|To link the wire pendant onto a necklace I added these small jump rings...|
|Final pendants and tools used...|
|I got extra inspired and made an infinity symbol pendant...|
