Experimenting with wire wrapping - A bohemian necklace !

Bohemian Necklace
Of late , I am in a mood to experiment with different wire work techniques and this is another one of my projects   . It was fun practicing making those tiny little drops and believe me there were many in this necklace !  (and as my son rightly pointed out , lot  practice would make me perfect ! ) . Then came the wired resin beads and finally assembling the links . Was planning to leave it as a simple chain but realized that the bunch of drops would not lie properly if I did so , and I had to add a pendant .

 The pendant was a little difficult for me as I was not able to manipulate the shape easily , ( it was first time for me after all ) but  the frame turned out well in the end . I embellished it with a coral color glass bead and added the drops at the base to give it an ethnic look to go with the necklace .

 So this is how I made this piece . But I wonder , do you design the link chain first and then move on to the pendant or vice versa ? Would love to hear from you about how you found this piece , and do drop by for I have another exciting project waiting to be showcased .....



  1. you are so talented with your jewellery this is a beauty and I so admier what you do it is far to fiddly for my clumsy hands

    1. Thanks for the kind words Margaret ! Love making new pieces , though it`s kinda difficult in the beginning , but I guess all this experimenting will lead me to perfection some day :)

  2. yes dangles are very time consuming and one needs a lot of patience to do them. I usually start with a pendant (or the focal of the neck piece) and then move on to the chain as I want the emphasis only on the focal

    1. Thanks for the reply Divya . Tried to gain practice by making all those tiny dangles . And I always did wonder what comes first , the focal or the chain .

  3. your talent gets 9.75/10. Respect.. :)

  4. WOW such a beautiful and intricate design. Super gorgeous
