Jewelery Making Tutorial: Magnesite Flower + Mixed Metals Wire-Wrapped Necklace
white hot! in the midst of our spring-time neons & pastels we felt it appropriate to have a collection of our lightest, brightest white strands.
the carved flower magnesite beads were a natural stand out, I mean come on, they're gorgeous! pairing them with gold wire & silver beads with a quatrefoil design helped to keep the carved magnesite beads the star of the show but complement them ever so nicely.
to create this necklace, all you need are the supplies listed below & the ability to wire-wrap! if you are unfamiliar or need a refresher - have no fear, we are here to help. check out our step-by-step guide to wire-wrapping here.
continue linking your beads to one another until you have your desired length. ours is approximately 25 inches, plus a clasp & jump ring. 25" will most likely fit over your head, meaning you don't NEED a clasp, but we included one just for looks. you can always continue your wire-wrapping to make a longer necklace if you please.
