I'm just getting into the craft and could use a few pointers.... I have some killer ideas just kinda need some tips and pointers or websites that have free instructions and help.

If anybody could help out I'd much appreciate. :)

Peace and love.

Thanks Lola... These pendants are very basic... some pendants can have any number of stones.

Pendants like these are what I'm striving to create, with practice...

Thanks Donna! I love this piece and wear it often.

Its hard to say how long it took to learn the basics.... the first pic in the thread is the first thing I did. Soo I would call that the basics. If you would like I could pm ya some tips that I picked up to start ya out. Its pretty rewarding!

Now I'm working on some copper things... one is a pretty big sculpture called "Peace Homie" should be done tomorrow and another copper wrap that I have the basics done but keep getting frustrated with detail work and cutting it off.

A Copper wrap with two pieces of Double Terminated Tibetan Quartz, a piece of Black Tourmaline and a Calcite window pain. This piece is super abstract and the pics do not do it justice.
