A Day at the Beach for Mom

Okay, so maybe you can't take your Mom to the beach but you can bring the beach to her for Mother's Day. I found the instructions to make this here.

Materials:
beach glass
16 gauge wire
24 gauge wire
metal charm (optional)
gel super glue (optional)

Tools:
wire clippers
needle nose pliers

I wish I could tell you that I picked up this glass on some exotic beach, but I bought a bag of beach glass at my local Dollar Tree store in the flower arranging section. Measure around the perimeter of your glass and cut three pieces of wire about 4 inches longer. Cut four pieces of wire, the same gauge as the big wires or smaller, about 3 inches long. Bundle the three long wires together and wrap the center snugly 3 or 4 times with one of the shorter wires. Snip off the ends of the short wire and tuck them in.
Wrap two of the other short wires midway on either side of the glass as shown. Lay the glass on a hard surface and bend the wire around the circumference. Wrap the forth short wire around all six wires. No need to clip this wire yet as this may be a temporary wrap.
Bend the top wire over the glass as shown. You may need the help of needle nose pliers for this step.
Turn the glass over and repeat on the back. If necessary, readjust the middle wire so that it fits around the outside. The glass is now captured between the wires.
You may keep your temporary top wrap or remove it and wrap one of the free wires around the others to hold them in place. Spiral four of the six wires and arrange them around the top of the pendant. I shortened a few of the wires before I spiraled them for variety.
Cut off all but about 1 1/2" of the remaining 2 wires and wrap them towards the back of the pendant using your needle nose pliers. This will form the bail to allow the pendant to be attached to a chain.
You may embellish your necklace further by glueing a metal charm (available in the jewelry department of your local craft store or the scrapbook aisle) to the front of the glass with gel super glue.

Below are several smaller pendants made the same way with a smaller gauge wire and irregular shaped glass.

Hi Gail, is it okay if I make a few of these to sell at a fundraiser for my daughter's school club?
I don't want to do anything without your permission! ;)

The sea glass necklace is stunning. I can't wait to try to make one. I also like where you "found" you sea glass. I can even do that.
