Wire-Wrapped River Rock Tutorial

Alrighty! I know its been awhile since I've posted over here...I just get so busy! Too many projects all at once.

But here we go with a great tut for you!

A custom wire-wrapped river rock pendent! Very pretty and Earthy!

What you need:
24 gauge wire, river rocks, jewelry findings (clasp, jump rings, etc.), black cording.

With about 2 feet of wire (just eyeball it...depends on how much you wanna use), start wrapping the rock.

I twisted the end of the wire into a little off-center knot as an accent or you can twist it on the backside to hide it.

Take another piece of wire about 5 inches long and fold in half. Then insert it around a few strands of the wrapped wire to hang the necklace by. Wrap it around itself to secure it.

For my necklace, I took two pieces of black cording and fixed the ends with necklace findings (you just insert the cord and pinch the edges together with pliers to secure it). Then with jump rings, I added the clasp.

With another jump ring, add your pendent to the necklace and all done! An Earthy necklace custom made by you!
