Wire Snowflake Pendant



Do you know someone who loves snow?  This snowflake pendant would make a beautiful homemade Christmas gift.

As a northerner who has lived in the south now for 12 years, I can honestly say I've had my share of snow, but I do still love it when we have a white Christmas, which we do get here in North Carolina.

Pictured above is a beautiful pendant you can learn how to make by watching the video below.

Jocelyn D. is a great teacher even if you've never made any wire jewelry.  She is very thorough with her instructions.  If you've never made wire jewelry before, you may want to start with a simpler piece other than the snowflake.

In any case if you have some nice soft wire, which you can buy in bulk you wouldn't mind if you made mistakes if you wanted to try this as your first project.  If you click the picture below, you can buy it on line too.


Multi-Purpose Wire 


The multi-purpose, multi-strand wire pictured above can be purchase at Home Depot or Lowes, or any hardware store for that matter, is so plentiful, it's a great way to practice.  Don't use this wire for ear hooks though, just for pendants or the ornamental part of a wire project.

You will also need a wire jewelry tool kit which you can purchase at Michael's or A.C. Moore craft stores with a 40% off coupon.

Jewelry tool kits can also be found on Amazon by clicking the picture directly below.


You don't need a lot of tools to get started,
but you will need the basic four, there are
many different kits to choose from




Here are the videos to make the snowflake pendant:










Be creative, and be happy!
