Cirrus Pendant Tutorial

Cirrus Pendant Tutorial

Level: Intermediate
Page count: 14
Steps: 31

Cirrus is the name for wispy clouds and as this was the inspiration for this pendant I thought it would be a perfect name.
This lesson teaches you to form a 3 piece frame, which is hammered to add both interest and strength to the wire. Beads in contrasting colours are added to the frame as well as a wrapped briolette. I have included tips for a little trick I use for wrapping briolettes so the ends are hidden, creating a strong and neat wrapping.

Material List:

7.5” 18 gauge soft or half hard round wire
14” 22 gauge soft or half hard round wire
38” 28 gauge soft or half hard round wire
1 12mm briolette
1 5mm round stone bead in the same colour as the briolette
1 4mm round stone bead in the same colour as the briolette
7 4mm round stone bead in a contrasting colour
3 3mm round silver beads
3 2.5mm round silver beads
3 2mm round silver beads
3 closed jump rings

Tool List:

Long nose pliers
Round nose pliers
Wire cutters
Flat nose pliers
Approx 2” scrap wire (22 gauge)

Customer feedback:

Your tutorials are AMAZING. I like to wire wrap, but I have never seen any book/website that is so detailed. I will be back to buy some of the other tutorials soon.
Thank you so very much,

I just wanted to say thank you for this great tutorial!!  I love the design and the instructions are so easy to follow along.  I’ve made three so far, and I’ve gotten so many compliments from friends and family that I know I’m going to have to make some for them too.  :)  I’ll have my eyes open for more of your tutorials!
