Sword Pendant Wire Jewelry Tutorial

I've just finished my 3rd wire jewelry tutorial. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to make a woven wire sword pendant. Here's a description of this tutorial:

This lesson teaches you how to make a unique and powerful woven wire sword pendant. In this tutorial, I will demonstrate the making of the sword pendant in the center photo.

The sword developed from the dagger, when the construction of longer blades became possible, from the late 3rd millennium BC. Swords are very powerful and are symbolic of solidarity, defense, clarity, honor and force. The sword is mostly known for its symbolism of protection, with honor and justice embodied in the blade. Metaphysically speaking, the sword symbolizes the power of the mind, and encourages the wielding of trained intellect to bring about the results we seek in our life. I’ve always been attracted to the sword, and tend to be drawn to artwork which includes a sword. The sword is often seen in the work of many of my favorite fantasy artists.

Once you have completed the tutorial, you’ll have a unique design you can add to your wire jewelry offerings. The design can be adapted to include different types of bails (this tutorial shows you how to make a tornado bail topper for the sword), various beads and gemstones, and a mix of wire colors, making each one unique.
