Last steps, please follow the pictures. Cut extra wire and continue wrapping the bail. Tuck in the ends by putting pressure with the pliers. You don’t want any wires to stick out!

How to Make an Eye Pendant

In this post I will show you how to make an ORB. It is basically a cabochon eye, wrapped with wire and made it in a pendant. This is our finished piece of jewelry.

eye orbWhat you need:
– 24 gauge artistic wire (silver color copper wire)
– 2″ bangle or any other already made circular frame
– flush cutter and a set of pliers
– eye cabochon from any craft store

wire wrap eye

Step 1 – Cut 8 pieces of wire, 24″ long and fold them in half.
Step 2 – Attach the wires to the bangle, using 3 loops, as shown. Try to place them symmetrically. You will have 16 pieces of lose wires.
Step 3 – Twist every two of them together. You will have 8 bunches of wires now.
Step 4 – Twist again every two of them together. You will have 4 bunches of wires now.

step 3

Step 5 – Bring together all the wires, as shown. Be gentle. You will have a thick bunch of wires now.

step 5

Step 6 – Start wrapping the eye.
This is when the fun begins and your creativity kicks in. I can not suggest every move and twist, as it is up to you to play with the wire. As shown in the picture below, you place the eye in the middle of the bunch of wires and gently bring each wire on top of the eye and slide it on the other side of the pendant. My tip here is to use wires from opposite sites, so the eye will stay put from the beginning. Once you cover the eye with all 16 wires, turn the pendant and tuck in the wires on the back of the eye cabochon. The last picture shows you how it looks. Don’t worry, it looks a little messy at the beginning, but you will press the wires and they will look neat.

step 6

Ok…. so now the eye is secured, that means it doesn’t move πŸ™‚
Gently push the wires from the surface of the eye, to the sides. Try to make a cute design. Flip the pendant and do the same thing on the back. Be patient, it will come around!

Step 7 – Start wrapping the frame.
This is the last step. Wrap the frame all around. Use strings of wires about 20″ long, it is easier. When you need a new string, just make the loop! Wire is a very forgiving material. In the picture below I show how I made a bail, just by continuing wrapping another inch and then twisting and attaching it to the frame.

TIP – when cutting wires, do it very close to the base and use pliers to tuck the ends in. This way the pendant will not scratch the skin.

step 7

That’s it! 7 steps to make a very unique pendant. Add a chain or a cord and wear it in good health. This is a very cool pendant, you will get lots of compliments and it will remind you of your inner spiritual self, because:

EYE IS THE WINDOW TO THE SOUL

Green Aventurine Tree of Life Pendant

green aventurine pendants

Aventurine is a translucent form of quartz that comes in various colors. Green Aventurine is known as a lucky stone and it is also called the β€œStone of Opportunity.”

Green Aventurine has a positive energy, so it is a great boost of chances in any situation. People like to wear a specimen in their pocket for bringing luck and prosperity.

Green Aventurine carries a strong connection to Mother Earth and increases the appreciation of nature.

Green Aventurine brings out this hope, that is why I decided to make a Tree of Life with small natural chips.

Initially, I was thinking to make just a small ornament, but I realized that my green aventurine chips that I had in my jewelry supplies box are of great quality, so I changed my mind: I will make a piece of jewelry. And one piece turned out to be two pieces… I loved making them!
