Tree of Life Pendant
Please note this is an intermediate project. You can make each one unique by adding different colors of stone chips or changing to another type of wire, like copper.

Materials:

Tools:

Step One:


Using the dowel or pipe as your form, bend the 16g wire around and cut to create a complete circle. Gently tap ring with hammer to strengthen.

Step Two:

Slide the 6mm soldered ring onto the loop you create with the heavier wire.

Step Three:

Anchor the 4 pieces of 24g wire to the bottom of the loop by wrapping several time around. (This will also hide ends where they meet on the wire frame.)

Step Four:


Twist the wires together to create a trunk. This should be about 1/2" or half the diameter of the circle.

Step Five:


Add the stone chips to the wire and weave* them to create the branches. Create a small loop at then end of each wire after the chips so they don't fall off.

*You can simply cross the beaded wires to create fullness.

Step Six:

Wrap the end of the wire around the frame to anchor. Make sure you capture the soldered ring in the center as you do this so your pendant hangs properly.

Step Seven:

Trim the ends and tuck down into the direction of the wire.
