“O” is for Olivia

Olivia just turned 10. She’s a very special niece and I wanted to give her something equally as special for her birthday. Olivia is sweet, funny, creative and extremely clever.

I was inspired by a project from Irina Mitch’s new book, Wire jewelry beaded beautifully. The April 2017 issue of BeadandButton published the “Ocean wave pendant” project from her book.

Here is my version of Irena’s project.

For Olivia’s necklace I made a cursive “O” shape, hammered it, and used the tail of the swoop to secure the ends.¬†Then I added the Swarovski Bicone crystals and two large jump rings for the bail and strung it on a leather cord.


We are celebrating Olivia’s birthday on Sunday and I hope she likes her one-of-a-kind necklace.
