Berries and Leaves Pendant – Free Project

Need a splash of color and easy style?  Try a long pendant with a few art beads paired together. As you can imagine, my mind is still filled with tropical island inspiration and this pendant certainly fits that bill. 

14mm lampwork bead
15mm lampwork disks
5″ blackened steel wire 22 gauge
28″ gunmetal brass chain
1 5mm gunmetal brass jump ring
2 6mm gunmetal brass spacers
1. Create a large wrapped loop with the wire, adding the pendant unto the loop before closing and wrapping.
2. String on the lampwork bead, spacer, disk bead, spacer and disk bead.
3. Create a wrapped loop on top of the pendant, wrapping the wire several times under the loop.
4. Add the chain to the loop with small jump ring.

    Absolutely love these two colours together, I am not usually drawn to olives or mustards, but here, I can really see how i could use such colours.
