I am delighted to present „Hidden pearl” pendant as my second tutorial. This project is much more complicated than my first tutorial - „Frozen leaves” earrings. I recommend it to those who have already worked with metal clay technique, or ambitious beginners.
Pendant "Hidden pearl" is a very interesting, romantic design, for those who want to learn creating floral ornaments and building slender, spatial forms.
Being quite advanced this tutorial doesn't present basics of working with metal clay (for example checking clay consistency, maintaining clay moisture, drying etc.). This information may be found in "Fingerpring of Love" and "Frozen leaves" tutorial, which I highly recommend for beginners.
Instructions are very detailed with a lot of good quality photos.
