This necklace took less than 45 minutes to craft! In fact, writing and photographing this blog post took longer! I hope you like this idea.
It began when I opened my Dazzle-It Mandrel package. The Dazzle-It line is very inexpensive. It allows a beginner like myself to experiment with wire working without making a large investment into a new hobby. I think it is an ideal starting point for anyone wanting to learn how to make jewelery.
This is the Dazzle-It Multi-Shape Mandrel (Oval Square Circle Triangle linked here.) If you really enjoy wire work you can start with these plastic mandrels and later on consider purchasing something more professional.
Since the mandrel is a new tool for me I began by wrapping several rows using each shape.
That made me think of ways to hide these edges. I used 18Ga black wire to create this new look.
