Captured Dreams Collection | Mini Make Monday

Ever since the beautiful Nunn Design range arrived I’ve wanted to make a necklace with the Hexagon Pendant. Semi-Precious beads seemed like the perfect partner for this project! I just love the variation of colours you get from Fluorite beads – everything from pinks to purple and from greens to clears. This simple project can be as neat or as messy as you like and is really easy to personalise – perfect for adding a pop of colour to any outfit!

To make the necklace

Step 1 – Cut roughly 60cm of wire from the spool and wrap one end around the top of the pendant base several times.

Step 2 – Add several beads to the wire and wrap the wire around the bottom corner of the pendant base. Ensure that you finish with your wire coming out from the underside of the pendant to begin your next wrap.

Step 3 – Continue adding more beads (in an over and under pattern) and ensure you’re wrapping them securely in place. You can then add a several blank wraps of wire to your base to complete the look – you don’t need to wrap around the pendant base every time, just ensure you have a good tension.

Step 4 – Once you’re happy with your pendant, come to a stop in the same place you started – trim your wire and hide the end neatly.

Step 5 – Attach your pendant onto your chain using a jumpring and trim your chain to length. Finish with a lobster clasp.

To make the earrings

Step 1 – Cut roughly 25cm of wire from the spool and wrap one end around a corner of the base several times.

Step 2 – Add several beads to the wire and wrap the wire around an opposite corner of the base. Ensure that you finish with your wire coming out from the underside of the pendant to begin your next wrap.

Step 3 – Continue adding a few more beads (in an over and under pattern) and ensure you’re wrapping them securely in place. You can then add a several blank wraps of wire to your base to complete the look – you don’t need to wrap around the pendant base every time, just ensure you have a good tension.

Step 4 – Once you’re happy with you finished look, come to a stop in the same place you started – trim your wire and hide the end neatly.

Step 5 – Add two jumprings and an earwire to each finished charm. Your earrings are complete!
