Cheri's Signature

  • Supplies

When working with wire, you can create your own shapes to wrap beads around. Cheri created a spiraling form as the foundation for this pendant embellished with Swarovski crystal pearls. You can easily showcase this pendant at the center of a necklace or make two for a pair of earrings. You'll love how fun and easy this piece is to make. For more wire-working inspiration, check out this Artbeads Cafe episode.
