Pearlie Pendant

About this design:

Wire wrapped pendant, bail, and clasp on a beaded chain. I need more practice making basket weave bails. I wasn't quite satisfied with this one so I blinged it up a bit to cover what I was unsatisfied with, and I think I like it this way. I prefer doing beadwork to wire work and so I inevitably wind up adding extra beads to the wire wrapped piece.


Mother of pearl disk bead. 11/0 transparent gold silver lined seed beads. 6 4mm eggplant colored glass pearls. 15/0 gold metallic seed beads. 18 and 24 guage gold tone craft wire. Beading thread.

    Three cheers for Bling! Your wire work on the pendant is so smooth and graceful it truly enhances the MOP disc. Great design!
