My Lyonesse Pendant is one of my favorite necklace designs, both to make and to wear. And now you can make it yourself!

This 18-page tutorial contains 35 full color images and all the information you’ll need to make this pretty wire woven pendant. I've even included recommendations for resizing the bead frame, so you can adapt the wire woven bead frame to fit virtually any focal bead.

FINISHED DIMENSIONS: The pendant is about 1-1/8 inches wide and has a drop of about 1-3/4 inches. I've also included instructions and supply resources to make the delicate 18-inch chain embellished with 3mm crystal rondels shown in the photos, but of course, you can customize the chain to suit your personal tastes.

SKILL LEVEL: Advanced Beginner
This tutorial assumes you're familiar with the Modified Soumak Weave and that you're comfortable weaving pre-formed core wires. Other skills required are making wrapped loop links and working in closed spaces.

I enjoy working with customers to create something uniquely personal, and I welcome custom and personalized order inquiries. Please understand, though, that these orders take up a considerable amount of my time and energy to produce. For that reason, custom and personalized items are not eligible for sales or promotional discounts.

As custom orders tend to vary quite a bit in complexity and price, I will set all other transaction terms (such as a security deposit or guaranteed ship date) on an individual basis. Convo me with as much detail as you can provide about the piece you'd like me to create, and we'll work out the final transaction terms together.
Earrings: I use 20 gauge wire for all pierced ear wires and posts, unless otherwise stated in the product description. You'll also find the general length and width listed in the product description. When in doubt, convo me for clarification.

Necklaces: I specify both the chain length and the pendant drop in the product description. The chain length is measured from end to end. The pendant drop is measured from the bail (the point where the pendant attaches to the chain) to the bottom of the pendant.

Bracelets: The sizes stated in the product descriptions for bracelets indicate the inner circumference of the band. I can generally make any bracelet to a custom size. Convo me for more info on custom bracelet sizes.
I use raw, uncoated copper and silver wire, which is treated to achieve an aged patina unless a customer specifically requests a bright metal finish.

To maintain the original finish, store your jewelry in an airtight container, such as a Ziploc bag, when not in use. Keep all jewelry away from harsh chemicals, such as perfumes or cleansers, and keep it dry. You can clean your jewelry in a solution of warm water and mild dish soap. You can also restore shine with a jewelry polishing cloth.

One of the things I love most about raw metals is that they take on a warm, natural patina with regular wear. Embrace the natural beauty of your Door 44 Jewelry. Wear it often, and it will reward you with a beautiful glow that is uniquely yours!
All Door 44 Jewelry is shipped gift ready in a brown paper pillow box tied with a black grosgrain ribbon. I may add seasonal adornments to my packages or change the color of the ribbon for various holidays. However, the brown paper pillow boxes are standard. You'll find pictures of both my standard packaging and my holiday packaging in my shop updates.

Please specify in the order comments if you'd like a package to be shipped directly to a gift recipient without a purchase receipt. If you'd like a handwritten note to be sent with a gift, include that message in the order comments as well.
I am not actively seeking wholesale customers at this time.
I fully guarantee my craftsmanship for five years from the date of purchase. If your jewelry needs to be repaired, resized, or even just cleaned and refreshed, convo me so we can work out the specifics of your request. All shipping costs and insurance, if desired, are the responsibility of the buyer.
