Idrith Wire Wrapped Pendant Progress by sodacrush Idrith Wire Wrapped Pendant Progress by sodacrush
Progress pictures of Idrith -

It was pretty much the first time I tried doing something in this style so a lot of it was just me messing around. And I did plenty of things that were really far more frustrating than they have to be, so until I figure out a better way of doing stuff, I can’t give a more detailed step-by-step. ^^; And if there are any suggestions/questions please comment :)

Oh wow!!finally a tutorial about THIS technique!!!Clap I've been confused since I saw this technique the first time.What do you mean with "hammered flat"?Is it a technique itself?Do you need to weld?and...how do you do it so spiky?Because when I bend a piece of wire it never looks like this, it keeps a round shape in the bending angle.And what metal do you use?I've tried with aluminium but I'm not sure if it¡s the best matherial to work with :( (Sad)
Sorry If I result annoying but I'm so glad I found this!!La la la la
Anyways thank you!bb!!!Meow :3

Sorry for the late reply!

I use a hammer and hammer the wires so it looks flat.

It needs to be soldered - after bending it forms a U shape, you can file the middle of the U and squeeze it to get a V spiky shape.. solder the wires together and file it flat (hope that made sense)

I use copper here, or silver sometimes - because they are easy to solder. I'm not sure if there's aluminium solder ^^;

how do you wrap the wire like that after its around the bead? every time I try it doesn't get tight enough

It was a bit hard for me also but what I've found helps is to use the pliers to make 'kinks' in the wire AFTER you've wrapped it.. that way it tightens the wire around the stone.  :)

I would love if you did more tutorials, is this called a certain kind of technique that I could learn?

:iconsodacrush:
sodacrush Featured By Owner May 16, 2013
Thank you! :D I would describe it as wire wrapping mixed with some metalsmithing, so it's not really a fixed "technique" ^^; (And I've never seen other tutorials of this style either.) If you wanted to see more progress shots, there are ones of other pieces on my blog: [link] :D

I can not thank you enough for this! There is a thing on facebook where you comment on the persons status and you send that person something you made within the year. It's a pay it forward deal. I really wanted to make a friend in Australia a pendant like this. Now I can! THANK YOU for being so generous!! You've made my day! :boogie:

Oh no, they're not really hurt, I wrap them with tape when I work sometimes because I'm vain and don't want to ruin my nails :XD:

I envy you for having a jewelry focused class in high school. That aside, I agree; I'm sorry to see the artist's fingers hurt.

Thank you for the progress, it's very enlightening and it's obvious you put much effort into it.
