I'm always saying that I don't like my beads to look machine made, I don't even like them to look handmade, I want them to look like they just fell off a plant - and these new large pendants are what I am talking about.
They were each sculpted on the end of a mandrel and then the wire loop was epoxied in place.
Here's a page of notes from my sketchbook on how I made the bails.
If it's too "sketchy" feel free to ask me to explain it in more detail.
p.s.I used 16g wire.
