Introducing our new downloadable project guide available in our Learning Center for free - The Royal Treatment Pendant.

The Royal Treatment Pendant features a bezel set faceted stone with sterling gallery wire and fine silver clay. It is easily modified for any type of metal clay and adds a touch of sophistication and royalty to your designs.

The Royal Treatment Pendant was designed by our official Project Designer – Lisa Barth. Lisa’s work is featured in our Jewelry Design Gallery and has now joined the Cool Tools team to help inspire others to create beautiful jewelry. Lisa Barth is a wire jewelry artist and metal clay instructor from Atlanta, Georgia. She teaches wire artistry and metal clay and draws her inspiration for her designs from the stone she is using.

Lisa uses a bezel set faceted stone with Sterling Gallery Wire. The texture on the Royal Treatment Pendant was made using our Jewelry Artist Elements Texture and cut out using a Jewelry Shape Template. This particular piece was made from Art Clay, but the project can be easily modified for any type of metal clay.

Find this project and many more available right here at Cool Tools. Keep an eye out for more free projects and many more to come from our new Project Designer, Lisa Barth.
