In this class, you will learn how to create a gorgeous, two sided pendant, using coils, a drilled focal stone and accent beads. You will be shown how to create wire coils both by hand and by drill during class. We will make the whole pendant together by hand, but I will also demonstrate how to create coils using a drill.
This unique pendant frame allows for endless design options and once learned, is easy to modify to fit any size or shape drilled stone (bead).
