How to Make a Cherry Blossom Pendant:
10" of 20 gauge wire
40" of 26 gauge wire
Assorted beads of different colors
Curved Tip Round Nose Pliers
Create your initial circle shape with your 20 gauge wire. You can use your hands to ensure it is exactly how you want it. Create a loop on the top with your curved tip round nose pliers.
Wrap your 20 gauge wire around the base of your loop about 10 times to ensure a tight hold. You will be sliding your beads onto this wire.
Wrap a new wire and insert your beads onto this one and slide them all the way down. Twist the wire around in a clockwise manner using your fingers. Trim off excess.
Slide on three more beads to a new wire and do the same technique with these. Grip the beads and twist the wire using your thumb and index finger. Trim off your excess wire so that it looks as if there is a branch hanging off.
Wrap your wire around your base about 7 times and then string on three more beads. Twist these beads as well and trim off your excess wire.
Repeat wrapping your wire around the base and adding the beads for however many branches that you desire. You can use one, two, or even three beads for each branch.
Slide your chain through the loop on top of your newly made Cherry Blossom Pendant and you now have a stunning necklace.
