I thought it would be fun to take you through the process of making this necklace.
First is wire wraping. I tend to get bored with simple wraps. I make up my own. I have no idea if this has already been done. I dont read tuts or watch how to’s. Mine are more organic. I use about 10 inches of gold filled wire.
Here is a photo of the first one I finished. I tend to make them all different just to have a more interesting finish. Sorry this photo isnt the clearest. I wanted to show you anyway. This wrap learns in one direction which will be put on the left side of the chain. I made one like this for the right side.
After making 10 wraps on different color stones I lay out the design.
I changed my mind about the chain I should use. I wanted something more airy. I also wanted this necklace to close in the front. This way you can play with how you would like the stones to fall. I used a small spring ring clasp.
This shows the colors a litlle better. Aqua, Iolite, Lemon Quartz, Garnet.
Thank you so much!
