Getting Ready for Halloween

Web wirework pendant

With Halloween coming up I thought this spider web design might be of interest. If you have ever made a tree of life wire pendant you will know that they are surprisingly easy to make and great fun. This design is made in much the same way and is not at all difficult. The key to it is using very fine wire for the last stages. If you can get hold of it, 0.2mm is perfect. However, be very wary of kinks and deal with them as soon as you see them develop. This sort of wire can be fragile so overworking or pulling too hard will cause it to snap. Full instructions with step by step photos are available in the wirework section. All this web needs is a friendly spider and somewhere in my stash I think I have got just the fellow!
