Learning How to Make Wire Cage Pendants

by Dana

I’ve been teaching myself how to create wire cages over the last few days so that I could make wire cage pendants for placing delicate objects such as small shells & crystals and other found objects that wouldn’t hold up to being directly wire wrapped into a piece.

Here is the first finished piece that I created:

 

If you are interested in learning how to make wire cages,  I learned how to do so from Janice Berkebile and Tracy Stanley’s book  Making Wire & Bead Jewelry: Artful Wirework Techniques:

Definitely a great book to get you started if you want to start learning wire working in jewelry and don’t know where to start. It will help you learn the basics of wire working as well as go over the basic tools you need. It also gives you a nice mix of beginner through advanced projects so you don’t get bored. I highly recommend it.

Today, I plan on going to buy some more brass and copper wire so that I can experiment more as these cage pendents are really super fun to make.

Thanks for stopping by!
