Spirograph Inspired String Art Pendant Tutorial

By on Thursday, March 22, 2012 10 Comments

String art pendants and earrings were popular a while ago (see links below).  If you like them, you have to check out this marvelous tutorial by Erin Norris who has an Etsy store called Stealth and Aces.


The large spirograph inspired pendant is different from the jewelry I wrote about before. It is created from circular plastic canvas and embroidery floss.

Erin says she had to experiment a lot to figure out how to string the thread in color sections. As you can see the results are just wonderful.  Shown here are some of her creations.  So head on over and check out all her tips and tricks so you can make your own.


I also love what her blog banner reads - " Refusing to be constrained by a single medium".  Great line  by a highly creative individual.

  2. This is fabulous!!!! I can't wait to make one. I am so glad I did not give my plastic canvas circles to my sister when she asked for the canvas I wasn't using. I knew they would come in handy. I think they will make marvelous christmas ornaments for the swap I am in. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!

  3. The wire ones are really pretty. But Taerie is right, the plastic canvas ones will also make awesome Christmas ornaments!

  8. I was also thinking that you could carefully add a little charm in the middle by adding a jump ring to one of the strings.
