Heart of Diamonds, what a deal! ;)
I designed this earring project in such a way that you can also use the same steps to make a matching pendant! This advanced wire tutorial contains over 120 clear, up close images and 22 pages of detailed instruction, in 41 Steps. A second digital file is included free, describing how to create your own earring hooks and necklace clasp. It also contains the pendant information including design variations.
This is a wonderful and challenging project for any level of wire artist. Learn the basics of wire weaving as well as a gorgeous symmetrical design.
