About this design:

This is just what it is called, twisted wire. I was trying to do some swirls by hand, and I just kept going.I liked how it turned out, although not what I had envisioned. I added the crystals.I have no idea what I'll use for the necklace part??


14 or 16 gauge copper wire and crystals. 24 gauge for attaching the crystals.

    Chaotic wire with crystal “resting” spots…reminds me of some road trips I’ve taken. Love the pendant! How about some ribbon twisted with the wire for the chain?

    Sooo cool! I love when a piece seems to have a mind of its own and this one came out great!
    What about hanging it from black braided leather?? Would be a cool contrast!
