I admit, I love a good glass of vino now and again, and what better embellishment than jewelry for your wine glass? I have a lot of friends who are difficult to make jewelry for or gift to and I've found one of the most beloved gifts have been a set of wine charms. They're great for all genders and ages, simply pick a theme and go for it. Recently, one of my jewelry peeps moved and of course since she makes her own jewelry, creating something to wear seemed silly so I came up with a set of housewarming wine charms with what else, a house for the cute little charm!
These samples are mainly made with TierraCast and Swarovski components. The purple one features one of my metal clay charms. Since more is better in my world (especially with chocolate and crystals), I glued on a tiny flat back crystal to the house charm for a little sumpin-sumpin.
Cut slightly larger than one loop using your memory wire cutters.
Make a loop at one end of the wire using your round-nose pliers, load all your beads onto the wire and make a loop at the other end. I used a combination of 4mm and 8mm crystals and pearls, TierraCast spacers and charms.
Add the charm to one of the loops with a jump ring
