Valley Girl Necklace
With this lesson you will learn to make this lovely delicate necklace. While learning how to construct this necklace you will learn several useful techniques that you can use time and time again on other projects as well as this one. I will show you the most efficient way to ball up your wire using a torch, an important skill to have.
This design gives you the freedom to get creative with variations. You will have a lot of leeway in your measurement since the size and shape of the links can be almost anything you want them to be. I will be giving you several tips and hints and show you a few inexpensive useful tools that you will be able to use in your journey as a jewelry artist.
Use a torch of your choice to ball up the wire I do not give instructions on purchasing a torch. Your torch just has to get hot enough to ball up wire up to 16 gauge. You will also need a tool that can drill holes. All other tools needed to accomplish this design are basic such as flush cutters and pliers. The wire I use in this tutorial is 14 gauge round wire. Choose whatever beads you like to complete your creative vision.
