Crescent Arc Necklace

PROJECT N8029
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
Discover the rustic beauty of Zola Elements in this artisan wire wrapped necklace design. The crescent pendant is wire wrapped with Miyuki round 11/0 seed beads, framing a Zola Elements monochromatic inverted drop charm.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 17.5 inch necklace. For a longer or shorter necklace, choose your desired chain lengths.
  1. If you are new to wire wrapping, begin by watching the video: How to Wire Wrap Beads onto a Form.
  2. Using what you have learned in the video, use flush cutters to cut 16 inches of 26 gauge wire. Take your pendant and begin wire wrapping 0.25 inches into the crescent by coiling around three times with one end of the wire. Make sure that as you are wrapping, you are always going in the same direction.
  3. Onto the wire, string one seed bead. Continue wrapping 2 times. Repeat this step 6 more times for a total of 7 wire wrapped beads. This should bring you about to the center of your pendant. After you have added the seventh bead, coil 3 times and clip the excess wire.
  4. Wire wrap the second half of your pendant in the same manner as you did in step 3, leaving a slight space after your last coil (see photo for reference).
  5. To hang your charm, use pliers to open a jump ring and slide on the top loop of your charm. Also slide on the center of your pendant at the point between the two wire wrapped sections (make sure your charm is facing forward). Close the jump ring.
  6. Next, use flush cutters to cut two 7.5 inch lengths of chain.
  7. To attach the chain to your pendant, open a jump ring and slide on the end link of one length of chain. Also slide on one end loop of your pendant. Close the jump ring. Repeat this step to attach chain to the other side of your pendant.
  8. To add your clasp, open a jump ring and slide on the end link of the chain on one side of your pendant. Also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  9. Open another jump ring and slide on the end link of the chain on the other side of your pendant. Close the jump ring. Enjoy your necklace!
