Naturally Soft & Uniquely Shaped Crocheting around custom-shaped wires is a fun and creative way to make unique and beautiful jewelry pieces like the custom shaped natural-soft pendant 'Naturally Soft & Uniquely Shaped' featured in Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine Autumn 2019. While the magazine provides techniques for making this piece, I want to share some additional details that weren't included. Follow these simple steps and create your own stunning pendant!
Crocheting around custom-shaped wires
Draw a double-lined heart shape (H: 55mm x W: 45mm) on paper. Bend 20-gauge wire into the two drawn heart shapes.
Wrap copper foil tape around the heart-shaped wires.
First securing each heart’s wire ends together.
Then wrapping the two hearts together.
Using hemp cord, crochet around the heart shape until it is completely covered.
Carefully tuck the loose end of the hemp cord into the crocheted heart using the needle. Cut off any excess hemp cord.
