I wanted to do something little and fun. I came across some half-drilled pearls, a gift from a friend, and remembered seeing something like skewers with pearls glued on the end. Kelly helped me remember that the cover image below is what I was remembering:
I checked this book out from the library a while ago, and enjoyed reading it. I wanted to combine something like the above with a rubber grommet, on hand from the netted bracelets I make. Because the circle is so much smaller, it’s more like spokes than the full necklace above.
The bail is rather half-baked. It’s 22ga copper artistic wire wrapped with 28ga silver colored wire. No way did I want to try to attach a bail to the glued elements, so I had to figure out a way to attach it to the grommet. I think this would work, but I’d like the wrapped wire to be copper as well. And have a wire-wrapper do neater wrappings for me!
