On the 5th Day of Christmas: an Art Nouveau Pendant

I was inspired to order some filigree findings from Accessories by Susan after I wrote the post on Renaissance style jewelry for ABS in August. I kept thinking about what I might be able to do with the curly metal pieces that seemed to come straight from the Art Nouveau period. After working with the pieces for awhile, I came up with an Art Nouveau inspired pendant using my Iridescent Flat spirals and a tiny rainbow spacer bead.

Once you've chosen the pieces you want to use for the pendant, you layer those pieces together. Use the headpin to hold the beads together and wrap the wire around the filigree backing. Voila! a one of a kind Art Nouveau pendant made of art beads! The possibilities are endless!
