Ornaments, Project Number 2

Project Instructions
Supplies needed for an Ornament
  • 1 Large ceramic focal bead
  • 4-6 accent beads
  • 1 charm to coordinate
  • 12" 18 gauge sterling or aluminum wire
  • round nose pliers
  • chain nose pliers
  • wire cutters
  1. Begin by laying out the beads the way you would like them in the wire.
  2. Grab the end of the with in the tip of the round nose pliers. Turn the wire to make a small loop, keep turning the wire to make a large loop spiraling out. This will be the hook.
  3. String all of the beads onto the wire, excluding the charm. Remember to string the top bead first and continue down the beads you have laid out.
  4. Once the beads are strung, make a simple wire loop to finish of the wire. Before closing the loop string the charm onto the loop.
Go hang those ornaments, you're done!
