1. Fill a bowl

Take a small piece of roving in your hand and submerge it in the warm soapy water.

3. Roll a ball

Gently roll the roving between the palms of your hands until a dense ball forms. The soap will keep the wool together once it is dry. Let the ball dry for several hours before moving on to the next step.

4. Make the pendant

5. Add the wool

Carefully slide the wool ball onto the jewelry pin, then add the second bead cap. You might have to twist the pin slightly to work the pin through the wool.

6. Create the loop

Leave about 1/4 inch of the jewelry pin above the top bead cap and cut away any excess with scissors. Grab a pair of jewelry pliers and bend a loop in the jewelry pin, then slide the necklace chain through the loop of the necklace.

7. Add essential oil
