by Karen Meador, Ph.D.
If you've tried Karen Meador's sweet treble clef earrings (https://www.wirejewelry.com/jewelry_making_patterns_tutorials/Treble-Clef-Earrings_374.html), here's a great way to make a matching necklace. Karen used enamel disks she'd made, and they echo piano keys! Use your favorite black and white beads to make your own Treble Clef necklace!
Instructions
Once you have learned to make the treble clef earrings shown in the previously published tutorial (https://www.wirejewelry.com/jewelry_making_patterns_tutorials/Treble-Clef-Earrings_374.html), you might also want to create a necklace.

I used 14g wire for this treble clef pendant and simply enlarged the measurements for the earrings. I started with 10" of wire. .

The discs shown on the necklace were torch enameled in white or black opaque. I used black as the counter enamel in case they flipped while the necklace was being worn. I attached the discs and pendant with wire wrapped seed beads. The black discs are intended to represent quarter notes and the white stands for half notes. If you are a musician you can see that this is two measures of 4/4 time. Why not create your own rhythm by adding more notes?

Due to the size of the pendant, I found it necessary to wrap the wire crossing nearest the top so that the clef would lay flat. I used 24g wire for this.
