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.

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|
Tools I used so far:
Flat nose plier
Round nose plier
Artistic wire 16 Ga, 22 Ga, and 28 Ga
Let your hands talk, be creative.
