DIY Turquoise Crushed Shell Tear Drop Pendant
Today I am going to show you a simple DIY tutorial for this wire wrapped turquoise shell pendant. You will need the basic tools: wire cutters, round nose pliers and a pair of flat nose pliers. Also knowing the basic wire wrap / jewelry techniques is a must... You will need to know these two first: How to make a simple loop, and Covering a Briolette. Knowing how to open and close jump rings is good to know as well.
See below for what you will get... If not then a similar pendant will do as well.
Wire for both white shell and teal pendant
4 - jump rings
1 - lobster clasp
1 - 18" copper chain
1 - Teal / Turquoise Shell pendant
1- Small white shell bead
1 - Swarovski Crystal bead
1 - Brass / copper head pin
You will be wire wrapping this pendant in the same style as you would a briolette.
Now that you have all three pieces, time to jump ring them and slide them onto your copper chain, attach your lobster clasp for closure and you are ready to wear!
Want to know where I get some of my beads and supplies? Beads and Pieces, Fusion Beads and Rings & Things are two of my favorite online stores to shop from.. Also there are a ton of single pieces on Etsy.
I would love to see you're DIY pieces! post them here or on my Facebook page :)
