Did you know that I have many of my tutorials available as a PDF?
First, the legal stuff (no fun, I know, but lets just get it all out of the way): These tutorials are for your own personal use, you may not forward them or print and distribute to friends. I also do not give permission to sell the finished googleybirds on Etsy. Please ask written permission if you would like the sell your finished pieces on other venues or would like to sell the cascade pendants on Etsy or anywhere else.
These tutorials are sent via email (PDF) upon receipt of payment. I’m sorry, if you need these patterns to be printed and shipped, then I will charge an additional fee. You are purchasing a tutorial only. Listing does not include a finished bead or piece of jewelry.
Okay, now the fun stuff!

This pendant can be made with headpins and chain, and either swarovski crystal or pearls.
The pendant photographed is the one that is shown through the photos in this instruction packet, but you can use the techniques to make your own design.
This is a BEGINNING wirewrapping project. Students will learn how to use a headpin and make a very basic wirewrap, which can be used for earrings, bracelets, and this pendant.
I use a handmade lampwork glass bead for this pendant, but any large bicone or tube bead will work. You can order a handmade one in your choice of colors by emailing me.
