Supplies:
.Ruler
.file
.round nose pliers
.chain nose pliers
.flat nose pliers
.tweezers
.dental pick
.chasing hammer
.anvil or steel block
.sharpie marker

. 2 dowel rods. One measuring 3/4 inch in diameter and one measuring 1/4 inch in diameter. You can use anything round with those measurements. I like to use my dapping tools for this.

.8 inches of 18 gauge copper or sterling silver wire(dead soft) for smaller pendant and 9 inches for the larger pendant.

73 inches of 26 gauge copper or sterling silver wire (dead soft) for smaller pendant and 84 inches for larger pendant.

. Beads for center dangle in the pendant. I used a 13 x 7mm lampwork bead for my large pendant and a 6mm x 9mm stone bead for the small pendant. You can also use bead caps and smaller beads to accent your dangle.

. 1 - 2 inch head pin.

STEP #1.

Cut 1 piece of 18 gauge wire 5 1/2 inches long for small pendant or 6 1/2 inches for large pendant. File the ends smooth removing any sharp edges and points.
