I had never done this before last night but I was bored and had beads and wire so......  Grin I really like how they turned out but the red one is my favorite. The pictures are a bit blurry but its the best my phone would do. My camera is in the car and the car is at work with my husband so phone pics it is.  Wink I'll try to get better ones this evening when hubby comes home.


A new pic where you can actually see them Smiley

Ok so dumb question probably... what size wire did you use and how do you 'fasten' the wire to the pendant?  Do you 'tie' it around the head pin loop at the top or something?  Thanks!!

The wire is 20ga beading wire and is pretty soft. I basically cut off a way to long piece of the wire and turned a loop near one end. Then I threaded the long end through the hole in the bead and bent it up and started wrapping. Pull it fairly tight and make as many wraps as you want. On your last wrap thread the wire under a previous wrap and cut it off as close as you can leaving the tail under the wire. That holds it in place. To secure the top just wrap the end of the wire around the loop to, in effect, tie it off. Just be careful, I jabbed the wire into my finger on the last one, that's why there are only three. Smiley

If I wasn't clear enough let me know and I'll make another and take pics of the process.
