Crystal crest necklace and earrings

Curvy crystals and pearls mimic the feel of the ocean
This project was created as part of a “rhythm” design challenge. I thought of the movements of ocean waves. I love the ocean! I can sit on the beach for hours watching and listening to the water. Even the splashing has its own sound and rhythm. I tried to recreate that feeling — the relaxing and re-energizing experience of the ocean — in these projects.

3. On one loop of a connector, attach the pear-shaped unit. On the other loop, attach a second connector. Complete the wraps. Attach a third connector and complete the wraps.
Tip!
Teardrop-shaped wrapped loops are a lot like round wrapped loops but less bulky. Use the jaw of your roundnose pliers to make a teardrop shape, then bend one end of the wire and make a set of wraps with the other.
