Project Instructions

Cut wire to size.

Using Beadalon® round nose pliers, make small loop on end of wire.

Using Beadalon® chain nose pliers, hold loop in place and begin to make a swirl design. This swirl needs to be about ¼" in diameter.

Slide pearl on to wire.

Position smaller side of the baler behind the wire.

Bend wire around baler, making a perfectly round loop.

Continue wrapping the wire between the bottom of the loop and above the pearl. Make four wraps, finishing on top.

Slide leaf onto the wire.

Wrap around the bale two times to secure wire.

Using round nose pliers, make loop on wire end.

Using chain nose pliers, begin to make a swirl, working it back toward the leaf, (where it is attached).

Use chain nose pliers to press all wires down tightly.

Run hand over ends to ensure there are no sharp edges. If there are, use round nose pliers to tuck them in.
