Introduction: Simple Wire-Wrapped Sea-Shell Pendant
I found a bundle of craft wire lying around in my house and was thinking of what to do with it. So I decided to make a wire-wrapped pendant. This pendant is actually very easy to make, you could even make one in less than 10 minutes.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials & Tools:
- A sea-shell (like in the picture)
- A wire
Step 2: Wrapping:
Start by making a small loop at the end of the wire. This loop will be connected to a jump ring.
Put the wire between the gap (like in picture 2). Hold the shell and the looped-end of the wire with one hand, hold the wire with the other hand and start wrapping it around (wrap it like in the pictures). I wrapped mine 4 times. You can wrap it as many times as you want.
Step 3: Final Wrapping:
After you've done wrapping the shell, wrap the neck of the loop about 4-5 times or as many as you want.
Cut the wire from the bundle and you are done!
Step 4: Done:
After you're done, you can now attach the pendant to a chain or a cord to complete the necklace.
Thank you for reading this instructable and good luck on making your pendants.
