Water lily necklace

I made this necklace back in December and i sent in the tutoral to the beads and beyond magazine, you can catch this in this months issue which is out next thursday 11th Febuary, on page 22, I have made the copper flower in the centre using copper pipe, the beads are from bijoux beads, one of my favourite online shops, and the gorgeous ribbon is from Diane Turton from sowZeredesigns, I'am really pleased with the comment from the Editor of the magazine (Michelle Powell) quote "I gauge my love for our projects, by how soon i grab my tools and want to give that particular technique or design a try, This time Eve Smith has inspired me to get some metal and saw away. I hope she gives this a try and lots more as well.


  1. hi Eve

    I loved this necklace in the magazine, and wonder if I may ask a n00b question?

    my boyfriend has kindly brought me home some old copper pipe from work, but I am flummoxed as to how to get it from its current state to the nice flat bit of sheet you start with in your tutorial.

    I could saw down one side of the pipe, but then how on earth does one flatten it out?

    sorry to ask such first principles questions :)
