Scapolite Spiral Circle Frame Sterling Silver Pendant
Following a number of requests to create a tutorial based on my Amethyst Spiral Circle Frame Sterling Silver Pendant , I decided to make another circle frame pendant to see if I could recreate the design. This time I used delicate yellow scapolite and tried to make the frame fit the bead rather than find a bead that fitted the frame (as I did with the amethyst pendant). This was the first lesson I learnt.
I also tried a slightly different way to coil the inner part of the frame. I was doing this late at night (when I am not at my brightest!) and only realised when the pendant was completed and photographed, that I had crossed the wires at one point (can you spot this?) - second lesson learnt!!
In summary, I'm so happy I learnt these lessons as hopefully I can make sure the tutorial is as clear as possible. I am currently working on an earring variation with a square frame - watch this space!
(This pendant is available for purchase at a reduced price (to reflect the slight error) in both my Etsy and Folsky online shops.)
