Firey Sun

by: Jennifer Tough

I was inspired yesterday by Dwyn's colour palette that she chose for her inspiration.  This necklace was originally going to be a pair of earrings - time constraints forced it into being a necklace :-) Wire wrapping is time consuming. I love it, but it's certainly not the speediest of processes.

I selected three colours of Swarovski bicones, threaded them onto copper headpins, then mixed them up. I was careful not to pick them up in any particular order when wrapping them onto the chain link.

The dangle part of the necklace is 7 links of copper chain. 15 Swarovski crystals are then wired onto links - some will have more, some less. It helps to use a bit of scrap wire to hold the 'top'. This makes it much easier to wrap on each bead. The dangle is then attached to the chain with a jump ring.  You could certainly choose to make this as long, or as full as you like!
