Squirrel Shadow Pendant - Wire Jewellery Tutorial

This morning I picked up my wire-jewellery tools and start thinking what I supposed to do with them.
Honest speaking I'm a bar-barian crafter, who do what my soul (hands, literary) wants to do at the time. I'm sorry.

Then, this is it.. a Squirrel Shadow pendant. I called it, just because accidentally I want a rabbit but appeared much more like a squirrel.

Let's get review what I've done.

1. I start with coiling wire by hand; a thiner artistic wire 22 Ga over a thicker wire 16 Ga.

1. Hand coiled
2. Approx length





2. Because as I said I am a bar-barian crafter, just cut the length what I like, I can't tell you the exact length I used. But at least, I did a picture that showed approximately 15 cm of 16 Ga, and 6 cm of the result coiled wire.

3. Then I did spiral at the side that has a small length of un-coiled wire.

4. I thought it would be nice if it tangled on a bead. Then, I did select one of my Axe Head Dyed Amethyst Agate that has a nice shape. I did insert a wire through the hole and tight it with artistic wire 28 Ga.

3. Spiral
4. With a bead














That was the time, when I realized what I am going to do with this...
If I am going to make a pendant (which usually I ended up with), I just lost my support to create a hook. The hole is full of 16 Ga wire.

Then my hands magically know what to do.

5. I thought I am going to make a rabbit head with its ear is going to be a hook for a collar, with 16 Ga of wire. I also tight its ears and the connection end and the other-end with 28 Ga of wire.

6. Tight it together, again with 28 Ga of wire. Then I know, I just made a Squirrel Shadow pendant. Ha!

5. Supposed to be a rabbit head

6. A Squirrel Shadow Pendant














Tools I used so far:
Wire cutter
Flat nose plier
Round nose plier
Artistic wire 16 Ga, 22 Ga, and 28 Ga
Bead

Good Luck
Let your hands talk, be creative.

Love,
