Blue By You
by: Dwyn Tomlinson
These Bermuda Blue pendants are soooo beautiful - the shades of aqua and deep, deep blue thrill you to the core! Combine them with vintagey brass for a stunning look.
This project involves some manipulating and bending and stuff.
Use a hole punch to make holes in the large brass finding, then carefully bend it into a U shape - I bent it over the jaws of the large bail pliers, but a pencil would probably work equally well.
To secure the pendant, cut a short length of wire, and make a spiral on the end - then thread it through the brass finding, through the pendant, and out the back. You can just fold it over, but for a nicer look, you can form a spiral on the back as well.
To make a spiral, start the spiral with the round nose pliers, and after the first full circle, hold the circle from the side with flat nose pliers, turn the spiral a little at a time, laying the wire down next to the original circle to keep adding spirals.
Add jumprings, chain, and the clasp to finish.
