  1. Supply List

By Mïa Vollkommer

NOTE: Registration will close for this program at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, November 18, 2022.

Creating a unique bead-and-wire pendant is as easy as 1-2-3! Learn the terminology, tools, and techniques of wirework including forming, hammering, and precision wire-wrapping to create up to two colorful “abacus” style pendants (one to gift, and one to keep!). A fun project for wireworkers of all levels, this pendant is a great way to use up the beads left over from other projects.

A class kit ($15 plus shipping) is available for purchase. Please see the supply list for tools and additional materials needed.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
