Now this pendant will look different depending on the colors you use, red and yellow could be a sun where as blue and purple a flower. This is where you can let you love for colors shine and do the most interesting of combinations. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
What you will need
Fine wire (tarnish resistant) – 28 gauge wire. I used a silver 28 gauge.
Crochet hook – I used a 3/2. 10 mm hook.
End clasps – which ever design you like. (note near the end for this)
Beads – 1 donut bead with about a 10 mm or above space in the middle.
Scissors – to cut the wire of course (it’s very fine so normal scissors will work).
Wire pliers– these are not needed but make your life a lot more easy while pushing the tails through the beads.
If the pictures are to small click on them to get a larger view!
Slip knot and then slip stitch around the bead. To do this hold the wire as you normally would bring your crochet hook under the bead and yarn over (2 loops on your crochet hook, this should now be above your bead) pull the first loop threw the second and that is all there is to Slip stitching around an object! Do this near one of the holes on the donut bead)
Repeat [chain 4, slip stitch around bead] until you reach your desired length and fasten off.
Wrap the end tails around the wire near it to secure them (tight little spirals) cut so that they will sit half way threw the hole for the donut bead and push both end tails into the hole to hide them. If however you don’t have holes or want to be able to move the donut bead then wrap the wires still and taper them so that you cant feel them at all and hide them in a slip stitch you did before, make sure no part can poke you!
Step 4 ( optional)
You want even more dimension going on! Repeat steps 1-3 with the same colored wire or different going around the first layer of loops. Slip stitch at the start of the previous rows clusters. remember completely optional if you like how it looks after step 3 then just leave it!
