Many of us probably just buy ready made metal pendants with a sun motif.  I know I have!  So this wire wrapped sunburst pendant tutorial by Domestic Diva Online will definitely be of interest if you are willing to have a go! 

Her design is forgiving because the sun's "rays" do not have to be perfect.  They do well to add the sunburst quality to the topaz crystal and makes the pendant design pop!

Another sunny design is the Sunshine spiral beaded wire pendant tutorial by Zoraida.  She says that you can make the design to sell but to please credit her as the original designer!

Such uplifting designs to see in winter! Solar symbols have been in used for thousands of years.  Check out this past post on Sunburst Vintage Brass Earrings, Sun Symbols and Newgrange to learn more about ancient symbols. Newgrange is a fascinating Irish site that predates Stonehenge.
