About this design:

Beadlady3 AKA Cindy has been making the most amazing pendants so I thought I would be brave and give it a try. Well it took me the whole day ( except for feeding the family) my wire kept breaking and my fingers no longer belong to me but this is the result. I am very proud of it although I must admit I had the most fun hammering the framework to harden it. I dont know if that should be done but I did it anyway. Will I try it again? Not for a looong while.


Copper wire, Various beads and lots of patience.

    Thank you all for your comments. My original idea was to have been far more simple but as I progressed I had gaps and messy bits that needed covering and so it evolved into what you see now.

    I love the way you made it work.. very pretty! Wire always seems to have a mind of its own but if you let it have its way the results can be amazing.. :D
