I'm really enjoying getting back into jewellery making after not picking up a bead in 8 or so years.
Today I'm going to share a very easy tutorial that I picked up from this amazing website, FusionBeads.com. The step by step instructions are very easy to follow and they also provided a printable download for easy reference.
I used solid steel galvanised wire for these little charms.
Simply: Cut a length of wire and grip the end of the wire with the long nosed pliers, rotate the pliers to form a loop. Then grip the loop firmly with the pliers as in picture D and push the wire around the loop. Keep repeating until you have the spiral size of your choice.
You can add a bead or leave as is.
Cut off the excess wire and form a loop - a cute little charm..... right?
Just add a jump ring and your options are endless.....
I've made earrings and necklaces too - I'm totally liking this look right now......
And some sweet little earrings I've made using charms I have in my bead drawer
Come back soon for more jewellery ideas....
