Chakra Pendant

  • Skill Level: Intermediate
Unless I am totally snowed in, I never miss my Yoga classes. I really admire my Yoga teacher, and I designed this pendant as a gift for her (she enjoyed it so much she didn't take it off for a month!). Another way to connect with your body is through its Chakra, which uses the same colors as the spectrum or a rainbow. Be sure to see my matching Chakra Earrings pattern on the Free Wire Jewelry Patterns page, too!
Special Instructions: The colors used in my symbolic earring design are:
~ Red: The first chakra relates to your will to live and your physical vitality.

~ Orange: The second chakra governs reproduction, emotions and creativity.

~ Yellow: The third chakra controls the fire of the digestion and the way you digest or process your emotions.

~ Green: The fourth chakra is associated with the thymus gland, heart and circulation.

~ Blue: The fifth chakra concerned with the power and impact of speech.

~ Indigo or Purple: The sixth chakra, known as the third eye, relates to your capacity to visualize and understand mental concepts.

~ Violet or White: The seventh chakra relates to the integration of personality with spirituality.

Instructions
Step 1
Straighten, measure, and then cut all needed 22-gauge wires. Individually twist each 6" piece. Use round nose pliers to make a small loop at the end of each 6" and 4" wire.

Lay the 4" wire between the twisted wires, with all of the loops at the same end, and tape.

Step 2
Use the 2" wire and flat nose pliers to begin a wrap across all three taped wires, working up from the looped ends, and wrap 4 times to show. Trim and tuck the wrap wire end.

Step 3
Slide the red 4mm bead on the center, untwisted wire. Bring the twisted wire on the right side of the bead, up alongside the bead, and over the top, wrapping the wire once around the center wire, on top of the bead. Then repeat this procedure using the twisted wire on the left side of the bead.

Step 4
Continue weaving the 4mm beads on the center wire in the same manner, and in this order: orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, then violet or white.

Step 5
After all of the beads have been woven in, bend the center wire 90° to the back of the pendant. Bend both twisted wires straight up.

Step 6
Place the double barrel bail pliers about 1/2" above the top of the pendant, on the two twisted wires, and bend them back. Form a bail as usual, using the remaining straight wire to wrap it in, 3 or 4 times to show. Trim and tuck all of the wire ends.
