Pod Lariat Necklace
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
The pods in this project are formed using a dapping block, followed by twisting and crimping with chain-nose pliers. The look of this piece is organic and features mixed metals that have texture and patina. You can use semi-precious beads and pearls, or any other stones that strike your fancy. There are templates for the shape or you can experiment with your own.
