Brass Wire Wrapped Turquoise Pendant
I’ve mixed turquoise with copper and brass before in earring, bracelet and necklace projects. There’s something timeless about the combination. Besides tools, this pendant requires only three items. That’s one of the beauties of wire wrapped projects. That and the low cost. There’s no wire weaving in this item, only wrapping. The thin 24 gauge wire puts up little resistance, making the work almost effortless.
step 1 - Cut two lengths of 18 gauge wire to measure 6”. Cut another length to measure 10”. Cut one length of 24 gauge wire to measure 10”. This will be your front wrapping wire.
