Simple glass charms

These were really simple: Jewellery wire, small glass beads and charms from the Cousin range  by Docrafts.

  1. Cut 15cms of wire (28 gauge).
  2. Thread a charm half way along the wire.
  3. Add a crystal either side of the charm the wind a loop in the wire using round nosed pliers to keep the crystals in place.
  4. Create a double loop at the very ends of the wire then shape the wire around something cylindrical (like a wine bottle neck!), and your done.
Now put the charm around a glass stem, interlock the two end loops to secure the charm to the glass and push flag against the bottom to create a lovely shape and help you keep an eye on your glass (and it's contents)!
