Pro Tip: • Keep sliding the weave along the thick wire with your nail to keep it tight.
• Hold the 10" tail for attaching the bead carefully out of the way so that it does not get tangled up with the wire you are working on.
• Oxidise the pendant to really highlight the detail in the wirework.
Cut a piece of 18 gauge wire 8 ½" long. Measure 2" from one end of the wire and make a sharp 135° bend using the flat nose pliers. Measure ½" from the first bend and make another 135° bend in the opposite direction to the first, using the flat nose pliers. This is the first of 5 petals. In the same way as before make another 4 petals.
