This is a freeform wire bead that you can make simple or extravagant, but it is always evocative. With several gauges of wire and lots of imagination, you can create a one of a kind pendant. Larger gauges and interesting textures make this basic bead look complex and mysterious. We will discuss the use of liver of sulfur, a step you can take to accentuate the detail of your pendant with an antique finish
