Looking for a unique piece of jewelry that screams you?
For this project I used:
6 Crystal AB 16ss Swarovski Elements Rose Montees
Jewelry Wire (20 gauge)
Jewelry Pliers (needle nose, wire cutter and round)
Cut a piece of wire about 8 inches long. On one end, fold the end down to make a very small loop. Begin to bend the wire in a circular pattern making it a little larger as you circle around. Once you get to the desired size, slip your Swarovski Rose Montees into place and secure with a bit of Gem Tac . Let dry for 24 hours.
Once dry, you need to make the loop for the pendant. Using your needle nose pliers, bend the free end of the pendant at a 90 degree angle. Grab the wire with the rounded pliers and again using your fingers wrap the wire around the pliers creating your loop. Holding the loop secure with the needle nose pliers, wrap the remaining wire around the bottom of the loop several times. Cut the remaining wire with your side cutters and tuck in the end of the wire.
String a chain through and you have a unique one of a kind rhinestones pendant. Use a tighter loop and attach to ear wires for earrings. Experiment and try different shapes.
