Wiring a pendant - Beadcaps
Last week - I talked about wring up a bead for a pendant, and I discussed using spacer beads to complement the bead and the decorative headpin.
However, a nice beadcap is another handsome design element to combine with a large focal bead and a headpin. You really do have to ensure that the headpin is quite long, as beadcaps take even more room than a spacer or two!
Just to show you, here is a basic, decorative headpin.
And this is with a daisy spacer and a star spacer,
And this is with the bead cap.
At the top, again, to keep the look balanced, a bead cap and a pair of daisy spacers.
As with last week, make a Wrapped Loop to finish.
