What Do You Need to Make a Pea Pod Pedant?
- Floral wire
- Beads (any colour and number)
- Jump ring
- Long nose plier
- Side cutting plier
How to Make a Pea Pod Pedant
Firstly, using the long nose pliers, cut a straight piece of wire and create a loop at one end, thread your beads onto this straight piece and make a second loop on the opposite end to secure the beads in place.
Secondly, wrap some wire around the beads to create the pod. Start at one end make your way down to the bottom, making sure the beads are secure. To give the pod some character wrap the wire loosely and tightly against the beads, this will help give a “woven” appearance.
You can add small sparkle or letter beads to the top of the pendant (initials are perfect for personalization!) To do this, use another small piece of wire and secure it to the top of the pod pendant, thread on the beads and fold the exposed tip to hold the beads in place.
Finally, attach a jump ring to one end. There you have it, a perfect pea pod pendant for Mother’ Day. So easy to make and beautiful to give.
