I pulled the turquoise and vintage bronze colors from the Czech glass beads to create this wire-wrapped necklace.
Amazing texture fills this necklace Twisted wire creates the frame for this custom pendant, while Czech glass beads give it color. Silk ribbon and wrapped wire keep the unique textures going. Discover other ideas for using twisted wire in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut two lengths of 18 gauge Vintage Bronze Artbeads Designer Wire approximately three times longer than the finish length desired. Attach each end of the wire to the Beadalon multi-strand wire twister. Twist the wire until you are satisfied or until the wire breaks.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
