Rhyolite necklace

About this design:

I wanted to put together a necklace for a bohemian blouse that is a light mustard yellow - the same color as the pearls. I do not know what the donut is made from, but it was the only one close to being yellow/orange in color. I learned how to wire-wrap the donut using one of Eni Oken's tutorials.


gold/yellow stick pearls, rhyolite barrel beads, Czech iris brown beads, MOP rice beads, flat round gold pearls, Swarovski yellow and clear 8mm crystals.

    Gorgeous ~ I love the way the beads seem to drape and fall, and the colors are fantastic. I love the gold colored pearls … a really nice touch. And the wire wrapping on the pendant, which is beautiful, is exquisite.

    Thank you everyone! These colors were really outside of my comfort zone. Karen, you can find the tutorial on Eni Oken’s website, The tutorial is called Frame Donut Pendant. I added the twist in the wires in order to make them more tight against the donut.

    This is absolutely GORGEOUS! Great work on the pendant, wire wrapping is flawless. I actually have this tutorial & have tried it 2 times only to put it down & be frustrated about it. You have “reinspired” me to try it again tmr. Definetely saved to my favs. Great job!

    Thank you! Lori, I used half hard wire with this donut. It seems to hold it’s shape better and the wire does not get all kinked up (well not too much)like the dead soft wire does.
