Project Description

Turn your own sketch into a beautiful silver pendant, or use one of the two designs I have attached to the class. The best designs use simple shapes building up a bigger picture, perhaps with a sawn line adding detail. Keep a margin of a couple of millimeters at least at the edge of your design.

The Bird on a Branch pendant used 15mm by 21mm of 0.8mm (20 gauge) silver sheet, and the Tulip was cut from 13mm by 25mm, and so as well as being beautiful these pendants are very cost effective to make!

Do remember to upload your project so that we can all admire it, and remember that I am here if you have any questions - have fun with your new jewelry making skills!
