Love and Above Dove – Wire Working Techniques

Create your own Schiaparelli-esque symbol-of-peace brooch/pendant with my bead-netted interpretation of the most talked about accessory worn by any performer at a Presidential Inauguration! [You know I’m talkin’ Lady Gaga, right?] I designed a Now That’s a Hammer! repoussé-style rendition originally, but couldn’t resist creating this beaded style when I spotted John Bead’s Opaque Iris Rondelles in gold and silver! Their faceting is perfect for this hammered and textured look for the non-metalsmith jewelry maker! Make one or more and spread love and peace throughout the land!
