This is a full wire wrapping tutorial pendant project from start to finish. This is a wonderful wire wrapping technique, using only 2 wires and 2 stones to create a beautiful Caged Heart stone pendant.
I enjoy creating on 'the fly' and so this DIY project is great for impulse creators! No measure and no plan, but a gorgeous piece of wire jewelry at the end of the project. I take you through the basic frame construction for this pendant, how to add spirals and hammered curves to your work and how to add additional wires to your jewelry work. I only used two wires here but you can always add more wire for more and more complexity and detail in your creation! Fun for all skill levels.
