A couple of people have been requesting a tutorial for this elegant pendant for a year and I'm pleased to say that I've finally finished it. This pendant has been a good seller for me at shows and I'm happy to share my technique for turning your favorite lampwork focal bead into a gorgeous caged bead pendant. The tutorial is 19 pages, and contains 45 steps and 50 photographs.
In this day and age we all need to work smarter and faster so I've incorporated some timesaving techniques and helpful hints including two pages of instruction on how to coil with a drill and even make your own mandrels. Every pendant will be uniquely your own based on your choice of components.
