I got this strand of Rainbow Fluorite Round Beads 7-8mm from Happy Mango Beads and the gems are variations of some of my favorite colors, so I have been using them as much as possible. And since I’m only using a few beads for each project, they really stretch.
So far I showed you this bracelet with them:
And today I’ll show you a pendant. (And tomorrow look for matching earrings!)
- 18 gauge wire
- 3 headpins
- 3 beads. I used Rainbow Fluorite Round Beads 7-8mm from Happy Mango Beads.
- Wire cutters
- Round nose pliers
- Chain nose pliers
- Ring mandrel or something like a big, thick highlighter.
- Hammer and steel block or anvil.
Twist the wire around.
Then wrap the other wire around. Cut off any excess wire.

To Customize This Pendant:

Tomorrow I’ll show you the matching earrings!
