Pendants Galore


About this design:

It is obvious (to me) I have a lot of practicing to do with wire weave. So I keep trying to work it in to different pieces, hoping it will one day be effortless! LOL. After seeing S. Clifton's copper choker today, I want to put down the wire and go back to some metal! Or maybe I'll combine them....

Components:

LB Amethyst pillow bead, fluorite rounds, glass pearls, Artistic Wire in lavender, silver, and copper, copper beads

    Well, Cindy…you should know that your wire-working and weaving skills top mine! I think your work is great and very original. I understand what you are saying, however….wire work has been the most difficult thing I’ve tried to do. Keep at it! You are definantly winning!

    Beautiful. I love wire wrap but have such a hard time with the tiny wires that I’ve almost given up. You’ve inspired me to try again. Thanks.

    Indeed gorgeous – and one of my favorites amethyst!

    I like them all, but the copper and teal really stood out to me. I am pretty clueless when it comes to wire, I made a tree of life once (pretty terribly, I may add) and haven’t touched wire since. One thing I do know, however, is gorgeous pendants, and these definitly fit into that category. Brilliant work ;)

    They are all beautiful :D

    Beadlady3 aka Cindy says:

    Thank you all! The teal was my favorite, and a co-worker bought the amethyst.

    The teal actually is an enhancer style – it can be hooked on to a necklace or chain. :)

    Nancy Mc says:

    Keep up the good work,Cindy. I think what you’re doing is great.
    They’re all lovely pieces,but the one with Flourite makes my heart go pitty pat.

    Fresh Baked says:

    Your weaving skills are way above mine for sure. I love what you did with the pearls and the mix of colors!
