The first step is, of course, to make a pendulum. This is a beautiful yet simple pendulum shown here. You can buy them, or make one yourself. (Click on the graphics to buy.)

There are two parts to it: a pendulum pendant and something string-like to hang it on.

It's necessary for the string or chain to be very fluid and flexible, or it won't work properly.

You can use practically any materials to make one, but it's always best to use something that is meaningful or beautiful to you.

Many people like to use a crystal that is threaded on a string or chain. Others use a favourite necklace. (This is handy, because it's always with you when you need it!) But any gemstone or river rock, a ring, even a carpenter's plumb bob will do just fine for most people.
