This handcrafted fine jewelry tutorial is a great project to make. Since our wire wrapping technique section hasn’t been updated for a while, we thought that we would present a new tutorial showing our readers how to apply a simple wire wrapping technique when making various handmade pendants and accessories.
Materials and tools:
Red, purple, yellow and green Jade Beads drop shape
0.3mm copper wire in red, purple, yellow and green colors
White cat eye beads drop shape
Silver tone iron chain
Round nose plier
Flat nose plier
Step 1: Make the briolette bails over the chain links
1st, snip a piece of red copper wire and silver tone chain;
2nd, thread wire through a red bead, fold it in half and slide the ends through the bottom link;
3rd, with pliers, wrap a loop above bead, and start to cover the briolette. Make sure that you pass loop through the last link on a short piece of chain with at least 18 links before you close the loop;
4th, carefully coil the wire around the beads and repeat process with other the beads.
5th, for every 6 links on the chain, attach a different colored briolette bail.
Step 2: Finish the handmade pendant
1st, make two cat eye dangles with head pins and form a loop on top of the bead;
2nd, cut off excess links of the briolette adorned chain, and use a jump ring to collect the pendant and the two cat bead dangles.
Step 3: Finish the necklace
Snip a long piece of chain and connect two end links by a jump ring.
The finalized necklace looks shown below:
