Wirewrap, 14k Gold Filled, Lampwork Seed Beads
I created this necklace, using 14ga, 14k Gold Filled Round Wire for the Figure Eight Yoke at the centerpiece of the necklace. Next I made Zig Zags of 16ga, 14k Gold Filled Round Wire. Both the Yoke and the Zig Zags were hardened and polished in my tumbler. For a pop of color, I wire wrapped 10mm Green Lampwork Glass Seeds, made by Radiantmind Lampwork. On either side of the Lampwork Bead, I added 3mm AB Swarovski Crystals, and 6mm Midnight AB Swarovski Crystal Flower Beads. As connection between the wraps and the Zig Zags, I used 14k Gold Filled oval jump rings. To finish the piece, I used 16ga, 14k Gold Filled Round wire to make elongated figure 8 links, as well as the S clasp. I used 14ga & 16ga round wire to make the other half of the clasp. Lastly, I added a 14k Gold Filled Headpin, with a 4mm AB Swarovski Crystal, and 2 6mm Midnight AB Swarovski Crystal Flower Beads. This is a One of a Kind piece!!
