Instructions

Straighten and clean the wire and then slide on the chosen bead.


Note: I use 22 Gauge round half-hard wire or thicker but remember it has to fit through the bead. Use any beads of your choice (shown are 6mm round and other)

Continue bending the wire ends towards each other, so they cross and form either an oval shape or a round shape.
