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.
