Peruvian Weave Encased Stone Pendant Tutorial

This lesson shows how to make a Peruvian Weave Pendant using wire, with a stone encased inside the weave. It also shows you how to make an easy, attractive woven bail for the top of the pendant. Once you have completed the tutorial, you’ll have a basic and very versatile design you can add to your wire jewelry offerings. The pendants are easy to create, are quick sellers, and make fabulous gifts. The design can be adapted to include different types of bails, added beads and gemstones, a mix of wire colors and different shapes of stones, making each one unique, yet if you need to make the same design over again, it can easily be done. In addition to pendants, you can use this technique to make earrings, a bracelet centerpiece, and even rings and brooches!
