Create this eye-catching pendant with basic tools and skills. Easy to customize, you can use a variety of beads and gemstones to achieve your own individual look. This design is simple enough for a day at work and fun enough to effortlessly take you from the office to a night on the town! The finished piece measures 17"-18", but the length can be easily customized by increasing or decreasing the length of the chain. This project from Step by Step Wire Jewelry will be free for a limited time.

The resolution for the pictures on this project seems to be very low. Is it possible to fix this? Thank you!

I've got a Bali silver finding that will work wonderfully for this. Thanks for the inspiration (all I need is a picture to "jump start" me).

This is a charming project--enjoyed it very much!   The only difficulty was in Step 4 in creating loops on both sides of the pendant.  Were I to make this again ( quite likely!), I would hold the bangle in my non-dominant hand with a nylon jaw pliers while using my heaviest round nose pliers to form the loops.  Thank you for sharing, Minnie!
