1. DIY Silver Pendant Jewelry Introduction: Hi there. My name is Tatiana Ambrose. And in this class, I'm gonna show you how to make this necklace pendant. I'm gonna give you the simple steps and how to make it along with different ways. You can personalize it for that special someone in your life to make it 81 of a kind gift. So without keeping you waiting any longer, go ahead and roll in this class and let's get started. 2. Jewelry Supplies Needed: Now let's look at some of the supplies you will need for this class. Of course. A spoon to type suppliers, one that's gonna be able to bend the handle of the spoon, and the other one that works will do every wire, a hammer, a sock, jewelry wire, beats of your choice, a Dremel kit, safety glasses and gloves, e 600 glue and a necklace chain of your choice. Now let's move forward and Turner spoon into a pendant. 3. Step-by-Step Spoon Pendant Process: So this is the spoon I'm gonna be using for this project. All we're gonna be doing is taking your spoon, putting it into the sock, rounded side up, placing it on a flat surface and then taking her hammer and begin flattening out the spoon . Now, the sock is used to simply protect the spoon while I am hammering to protect it from getting any rough edges or scratches during this process. And I will occasionally take out the spoon to check. It looks like it does need to be a little bit more flattened. So I'm just going to continue this process until I am satisfied with how flat I get the spoon. This first step took me less than three minutes to complete. So when you are ready and happy with how flat your spoon ISS, go ahead and move on to next step. Now, once you have your flattened spoon, it is time to create our pendant loop that your necklace chain is going to go through. So I'm gonna take my spoon pliers and a sock again to protect the spoon. Decide on how big you want the loop to be. Then you're simply gonna put the sock over the spoon handle and then take your players and bend it to form that loop. So this is what you wanted to look like at the moment in the next section, I'm going to show you how to cut off the remainder of the spoon handled that we no longer need. So we can close our pendant loop for this step. I have a cutting wheel on my Dremel. I'm gonna take my Sharpie and mark on the spoon handle where I'm going to be cutting. Now it is time to put on your safety glasses and gloves before continuing on with cutting the spoon handle. Once you have cut off the end of the spoon handle, let this pendant cool off for a couple minutes. Since that loop area is gonna be a little bit hot to the touch. So this is what you should have. And the end of that handle where you cut is a little bit rough. So I'm simply going to add a sanding tool to the end of my Jermell and sand that edges down so they're not as sharp. There we go. The end of my pendant loop is no longer sharp. So let's move on to the next section. The last part of closing our pendant loop is to simply wrap a sock around it taker Pires and close it shut. Now I'm gonna have a pretty small necklace chain. So I'm not concerned about having a really big loop. I will add that getting the perfect shape and size of the pendant loop will probably be your hardest task out of this entire project simply because different spoons bend differently. So I highly recommend experimenting over and over and over with various spoons until you get the technique down. So here's how my pendant loop turned out. I'll see you in the next section. Now that you have your spoon pendant, it is time to start decorating it. So I'm gonna have my jewelry Pires e 600 glue beads and jewelry wire. Now, with a single jump ring, I'm gonna open it up and attach it to the loop off my pendant. There we go. Now it is time to snip off two short pieces of my jewelry wire, and I'm gonna be doing is adding one bead per wire and then twisting it toe. Have a little dangly bead. There's one and do the same thing for the 2nd 1 except a one of two different lengths. So this one is gonna be a little bit shorter. - Great . Now it's time to attach. It I'm doing is taking my single wire through the jump ring and then twisting it around a couple times to make sure that it is safe and secure snipping off the ends and then using my pliers to fold over the tail so it doesn't stick out and poke anyone. There is one. Then repeat on the 2nd 1 which is gonna be a little bit longer. So here are the two beads now connected, dangly looking awesome. Next, we're going to be adding 1/3 bead to the middle section of the spoon pendant. All you're going to be doing is applying a dab of the E 600 industrial strength glue to the bottom of the bead and secure it to where you want it to stay. I thought that I would be happy with three beats, but to me it looks off balance so forth. This pendant I did end up adding 1/4 bead, which ended up making dependent look amazing, in my opinion. Now, as a final note, the E 600 industrial strength glue does take a little bit of time to dry. So while it is drawing, you do want to make sure that the pendant is as horizontal and flat as possible because you don't want the beads being pulled down while they air drying. You want him to stay in place, let's move on and look at a few other pendants that I have made along with various ways you can decorate them. 4. Jewelry Bonus lecture: Now let's take a look at one of my favorite pendants made from this spoon. I flattened the spoon, use my pires to bend the loop, use my cutting wheel to cut off the handle that I didn't need, then used my pliers once again to close the loop and add my jumping. And last but not least added my beats. These are one of my favorite beads ever. So here are my two other pendants. I want to take a moment to talk about the different spoons that are out there. So the reason why I really like my blue pendant and it's my favorite is because not only do I like the colors, but this spoon that I used had a thicker handle, which made forming the loop a lot easier. So if you're struggling with getting the perfect loop for your pendant, try finding and using a spoon that has a thick handle now dependent with my purple beat. That does not have a look because it had a really thin handle. Tow where I bent it a little too many times and it just broke off. So what I ended up doing was drilling a hole independent, adding a couple jump rings and total That is one other way that you can make a pendant, especially if you're struggling with forming the perfect size loop. Now to finish off this section, let me go over some other things you can do to really spice up and personalize your pendant . You can stamp, engrave, color or even paint dependent. One of things I like is adding mod podge and glitter to this pendant. Or you can simply glue all sorts of fun things to this pendant. You don't even have to have any Dingley charms or beats, or even drill a design independent itself and have a little carving to where you can see through dependent. Whether it's waves, flowers, leaves smiley face, what have you. So hopefully this really gets your creativity going as you start thinking of ways to personalize your pendant, make it one of a kind and make it extra awesome for that special someone, or just keep dependent for yourself because you're awesome and you put in a lot of hard work and it should pay off right. But no matter who you make it for great job on completing this class, and thank you so much for joining me 5. Silver Pendant Jewelry Necklace Conclusion: Hi. Now you have reached the end of this class. As always, I would love if you love to review to let other students know what you thought of this class and for your project. I want you to take this pendant, personalize it and leave a photo in the project area of this class. Thank you again for joining me and I will see you in the next class. 6. Dream catcher Necklace Supplies: Now before moving forward, let me go over really quickly on the supplies you will need for this class. First, uh, 17 gauge wire, swayed lace. Two colors of your choice. One is going to be the inside pattern, and one is going to be to hang up your dream catcher after it's complete. Beads of your choice. Superglue, tweezers, scissors, jewelry wire clippers, and jewelry pliers, and the binder clip. Now if you don't have some of these items in your home, feel free to watch this class all the way through and then see what you have in your home that you can substitute. Ok, let's continue on. 7. Dream catcher Necklace Part 1: So to begin, we're gonna take our 17 gauge wire and form the circle of the dream catcher. You can make this a small or as big as you want if you're starting off, I would definitely suggest to make a bigger circle because it'll be easier to make the pattern on the inside. Now wrap it around a little over two times and use your wire clippers to clip off the end there. Now all we're gonna do is just wrap the wire around the circle to reinforce it. Then take your wire clippers, clip off the ends. And then with our jewelry pyres simply bend the ends down so they are not sticking out. And there we go. Our circle for a dream catcher is now complete. Next, let's move onto our swayed lace. Or we're going to be doing is taking our swayed lace. Now it's still attached to the spool. I'm going to start at one end and just simply start wrapping. Now this is a thicker lace, so it is a little bit more difficult to work with. The thinner the material, the easier it is to work with. Now as I'm wrapping, it's getting hard to hold both ends. So I'm gonna take my binder clip and secure one end with it so it doesn't unwind from the circle. And then I'm gonna continue doing this until I'm close to where I started. So once you have reached the end, I'm going to do is cut off the tail to detach it from the spool and continue wrapping until I can only see a portion of the metal wire. There's a couple of ways you can end this. First would be to tie a knot. But what I'm gonna do is actually take some superglue, apply it where the swayed meets the wire, and then talk the edges in and then clip the remaining tails off with my wire cutters. And there we go. We now have a completed outside circle. Now, let's begin the pattern for the inside of this dream catcher. 8. Dream catcher Necklace Part 2: All right, so to begin our pattern, I'm gonna take my silver thread and tie a double knot around the swayed ring. Such a beginner pattern, I'm gonna take my silver thread, go across about half an inch, wrap it around the swayed circle, and then bring that thread back up through the space between the silver thread and the swayed circle. Then you're just going to repeat this pattern. So again, half inch over the swayed ring and through the space between the silver thread and the circle. You're gonna continue doing this until you are back at the start. But before you finished with the first row of patterns, you want to leave a small space between where you started and where you end off to give us room to start on the second layer of our pattern. Now to start our second row, I will be using my tweezers and you're simply going to do the same thing. But instead of our swayed circle are now using the first layer of patterns. So over the first row of silver thread, Take your tweezers, pull it through, and then pulled a silver thread back through the center. Now repeat, put it over the silver thread. Take your tweezers, pull it through, and then back to the middle. Now as you can see what this pattern, the little triangles are beginning to form. So go ahead and complete the second row. Now. Once you finish your second row, we're going to begin our third row by simply putting the thread over the triangle. Taken or tweezers, pulling the thread through the triangle. Backup the center, and repeat the threat over the triangle. With your tweezers. Pull it through the triangle and then pull it back up the middle. Once you have completed your second row, you're going to do the exact same thing, except the triangles now are going to be smaller. And once you have completed your third row, it is time to move on to the next section, where we will add our bead and we will complete our final row for this pattern. 9. Dream Catcher Necklace Part 3: Now it's time to pick out your bead. I'm going to add a light blue bead. But you can pick any beat of your choice. You're simply going to add the bead onto the string and continue one more row of your patterns. So just go through the tiny triangles until you get all the way around back to the bead. And once you have completed your final row, simply tie to noughts to close off this pattern. And once you complete that, just simply take your wire clippers and clip off the remaining silver thread. Now let's continue on and complete this dream catcher by adding the finishing touches. 10. Dream Catcher Necklace Part 4: Now let's add the beads to the bottom of our dream catcher. I'm gonna do is thread each row of my beads onto my silver thread. And then I'm gonna take the bottom of the silver thread and string it back up through the second bead all the way up to the top. This way, the beads are secured onto the thread. And then I'm just going to repeat the same thing to the other side. Next, I'm going to take my suede lace, string it through the bottom of my dream catcher, and then just tie a knot. After that's complete. As you can see, I've already added one strand of beats to my one side. I'm gonna do the exact same thing to the other side. So I'm gonna take my tweezers to help me pull up the bottom thread through the dream catcher and then just tie to naughts and use my wire clippers to clip off the excess thread. Finally, to complete the bottom portion of the dream catcher, I'm just adding two more swayed laces to each side of the dream catcher next to the beads. 11. Dream Catcher Necklace Part 5: Now of course we are making a necklace, so I have to do another lecture to show you how to make a necklace. First you're going to pick out a necklace string chain that you want. You can even use a chain with a class already on it to make it just that much easier. So what I'm gonna do is meet the ends together since I don't have a chain to use for this one, have a little loop at the end, loop it through the top of the dream catcher, and then take the ends and pull them through that loop. And then simply pull to tighten. And voila, I have my dream catcher necklace or ready to go. All I'm gonna do is fitted around my neck and tie it in an OT, as you can see, here is the n. Look, I am going for a little bit more of a bohemian viable here with my multiple layers of my necklaces, including my dream catcher necklace as well. And I really hope that you have liked both of these necklaces tutorials. Let me know what you think by leaving a review for this class. 12. What To Enroll Into Next?: Hi.
