Needlelace Caged Pendant
Needlelace Caged Pendant This tutorial takes a timeless lace making technique called ‘needle lace’ and applies it to wire working to create a delicate and highly detailed pendant. I have taught this lesson to a beginner wire worker with very good results. Based on this experience I assume that a beginner can complete this tutorial even though I rate it as an intermediate to advanced project.

Tips on stone selection: For this tutorial you will need a stone or bead that the wrap can grab onto. To this end it is best to a stone that begins smaller, widens out and then tapers back in. A free form faceted stone such as the in main picture above, or a briolette shaped bead as shown below are perfect for this type of wrap.

Materials needed: (not included)

1 – Stone or large focal bead. In this tutorial I use a 24mm x 30mm x 6mm briolette.

5’ – 26 gauge round dead soft wire

2 - 3 mm jump rings 15” – sterling silver chain optional

1 – clasp of your choice to finish the necklace 1 – 4 mm swarovski crystal

1- 4mm bi-cone swarovski crystal in complimentary color

Tools needed: (not included)

Flush cutters

1.30 mm knitting needle or other such item to use as a mandrel (optional).
