This lesson teaches you how to create a beautiful, lacy frame to capture a focal bead. The swirls can be shaped to create almost any shape you like. The pendants show here resemble abstract hearts, however, you can also make them round, oval, square, or any other shape you like.
This lesson calls for a bead that is 18x25mm, however, you can use almost any size bead you like that is drilled lengthwise. Just keep in mind that the length of wire you will need will vary for differently sized beads.
