Project Instructions

Take 2 large wire hoops from your wire hoop assortment, put aside.  Cut 18-inches of your 26G wire, make two.  

 

Working on your first large wire hoop: Take your first 18-inch piece of wire and leaving 1-inch of wire from one end, start wrapping the wire around the hoop starting from the looped end of your wire hoop. Make three full wraps. Repeat on second hoop.

 

Working your way up and away from the looped end of your wire hoop: insert one pearl then make two full wire wraps around the hoop. Repeat until you have used up all seven pearls. Create three full wire wraps after the last pearl.  Repeat on second hoop.

 

Working your way back down towards the loop of your wire hoop:  Repeat the technique from Step 3 using 11 large gold beads. Repeat on second hoop.

 

Working your way up and away from the loop of your wire hoop: Repeat the technique from Step 3 using 11 medium gold beads. Repeat on second hoop.

 

Using your chain nose pliers, secure the last 3 wire wraps by lightly pressing on them then fold wire down to form a crescent shape wire form. Repeat on second hoop.
