    Step 2: add on the pearl beads

    1. Snip a short strand of 0.5mm brass wire, about 20cm is enough;

    2. Anchor the wire on the frame with several turns;

    3. Slide on the smaller pearl bead and wrap certain number of turns to help it stay in place;

    4. Add on the 12mm pearl bead and another 8mm piece in same way;

    5. Affix the end of the wire in the same manner as you did at the beginning of the wire.

    And this is the pearl pendant!

    Step 3: add on chain

    For a pearl pendant necklace, I simply made use of the silver chain. Finally, connect the two tips of the chain using a small jumpring. Or add on a lobster claw clasp if you want your item to be a snug piece.

    The wire wrapped pearl pendant necklace is completed, and it merely took me a quarter of an hour with a budget of less than 5 dollars. All the handmade jewelry designs are simple to make at home, as long as you take the essential tools and supplies.
