…and we’re back and ready to finish the fly pendant we started in this POST. So, get your tool and materials get ready to turn your cabochon into a beautiful winged creature!
Bend the wire downward to form a love shape.
Cross the wires at approximately 2 cm from centre.
Make a spiral at the right with the remaining wire outside the love shape. It should be above the previous spiral made.
Repeat the same for the left side.
There are 2 wires left up there. Make one spiral with one of the wire and place it at the bottom of the love shape.
Make another spiral with the last wire up there and place it at the top joint at the love shape. The spirals would actually cover the joints at the back.
Let’s place eyes for the fly. Cut approximately 6cm of 28ga wire. Wrap one end onto the love shape for 2 to 3 times.
Place an 8mm bead (that serves as the eye)into the wire and place it nicely on top of the love shape.
Wrap 2 to 3 times of the other end of the wire around the love shape to secure the position of the ‘eye’.
Cut off the excess wire at both sides.
Repeat another eye at the left side. Cut off excess wires. For the final touch up, you can adjust the position of the spirals and the eyes so that it mimics the look of a fly.
