Description

Spring is in the air and what better way to bring it in then with bright colors and butterflies. Using oxidized copper and colorful beads, Kasia from Kica Bijoux shows us how to create an enjoyable butterfly pendant.

Tutorial: Sprin Butterfly made by Kica Bijoux

List of Materials This is the list of materials and tools necessary to make 1 pendant • I've used oxidized copper to create this earrings, but it can be any other wire – brass, copper, silver or gold-filled. • 35 cm (13,5’’) of 20 gauge wire (of 0,8 mm in diameter) • 50 cm (19,7”) of 28 or 29 gauge wire (of 0,3 mm in diameter) cut into 2 pieces (to attache beads to the butterfly). *1 piece - around 20 cm (7,87”) of 28 or 29 gauge wire * 2 piece – around 30 cm (11,8”) of 28 or 29 gauge wire • 1 copper bead – size 3.5 mm *lots of colorful beads in different sizes * Remember to check if your beads are not to big, and right sizes before attaching them to the butterfly – look at step 8* You can cut more 28g wire than i propose if you will use more/bigger beads than me. In this way you will not run out of it, before attaching all beads. !!!First of all check if your copper bead (size3,5 mm) have a big enough holes for two 20 gauge wires. Not every beads have that. !!!

List of Tools *round-nose pliers *wire cutters *flat-nose pliers

0.7” 1” 1,18” Measurements

Step 1 Fold a length of 20g wire in half (as shown in th the photo) and then unfold it delicately (3rd photo).

In this step, use your round nose pliers to create small loops (as shown in th the photo) on both sides of the pendant (3 loops at right and 3 loops at left side). Step 2

Now bend wire in two points (look at the red dots) creating first butterfly’s wing (look also at measurements). Step 3

Make the same moves with second wing  Bottom of the butterfly is ready! Step 4

Now you have to create upper wings. Bend wire at the right and left side in the same point, creating symmetrical wings. Step 5

In this step use your round nose pliers to create loops at the top of butterfly’s upper wings. Gently shape the wire creating wings. Step 6

Bend both wires up in the same point (photo 1), then put the copper bead on both wires, wrap one wire around the other, and shorter it. Base of the pendant is almost ready… Step 7

Now create the hook and if you need to, shorten the wire and then close to hook. You can squeeze it with flat nose pliers to make it more solid. Now chose the beads to fill the butterfly. It’s good to check first if beads you chose can fill the butterfly easily (some could be too big or to small, so here is a time to choose correctly and check it out). Step 8

Now wrap few times thin wire around the one end of butterfly wing, put the bead onto the wire, and again wrap the thin wire around the base. Look at the first diagram to see the direction of the wrapping. Step 9

The idea of attaching beads to the pendant is identical as in step 9. Just put the next bead onto the wire and wrapp it to the base (and repeat this step as much as you need). At the end of one wing put the bigger bead onto the wire and then wrapp the wire at the beginning of second wing. Step 10

When you finish filling the lower part of the butterfly cut the thin wire wich left and smooth the edges. Step 11

Now it is time to fill the upper side of the butterfly. As you can guess, you fill it in the same way as bottom part. Start with wrapping thin wire around the base of the pendant, then put the bead onto the wire, and again wrap wire around the base. Reapeat this step as many times as you need. Step 12

In the second photo you can see the direction of the wrapping. When you finish, cut the thin wire that is left and put the chain onto the pendant. The butterfly is ready to wear :) Step 13
