Tanzanite Wire Wrapped Tree of Life

PROJECT N799
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Advanced
This necklace features an enchanting tree pendant created out of silver artistic wire and tanzanite gemstone chips. Make the tree as big and full as you like and have fun making branches and swirls.
Instructions
Please note: this necklace does not have a clasp and is meant to be slipped over the head. It is 36" long. If you want to add a clasp, feel free to do so. A lobster or spring ring clasp would look nice with this design.
  1. To make this tree of life pendant, please watch the video: How to Make a Wire Wrapped Tree of Life Pendant. In the video you will learn how to make the exterior hoop frame as well as the tree itself and how to add the gemstone chips.
  2. Once your pendant is made, it is time to add the chain. Open a jump ring and link it to the loop on the top of your pendant as well as the mid way point of your chain. Close the jump ring.
  3. Open a second jump ring and link it to the end chain links on either side of your chain. Close the jump ring.
  4. Enjoy!
