Instructions
Step 1
Put together a bead combination and measure its length. Add 1½" to this number and cut a piece of wire the same total length. From one end of the wire, measure down 3/4" and mark. Use chain nose and round nose pliers at this 3/4" mark to begin a wrapped loop. After beginning the loop, add the chosen bead combination to the wire and begin another loop at the opposite end of the wire, about 1½mm after the last bead.
