Snowflake Obsidian Wired Pendant Necklace

30 December, 2011
Snowflake Obsidian Wired Pendant Necklace

The pendant in this necklace is created using Snowflake Obsidian (8mm, 6mm & 4mm round gems) placed in descending size, that is edged by silver-plated wire (0.6mm thickness), with the beads attached by thinner sections of silver-plated wire (0.4mm thickness). It’s then been placed on a silver-plated chain finished with a lobster clasp. The overall length of the necklace is 18″ with a pendant length of 1.5″.

I initially tried using 0.8mm thickness wire to edge the beads with, however I found that this size wire was too large and difficult to bend around the 4mm obsidian gem. Therefore, I went with using 0.6mm wire for the edging effect. It also took me several attempts to figure out how to start and finish the wire edging, in order to give a neat finish.

This was a gift I made for a family member.
