Petite Inspirations

In the name of inspiration and all things interesting to me and hopefully you.

Geometric Square with Decorative Wire


Supplies: 
2- 13 x 11 mm square glass beads 
2 – 10 mm decorative connecting wire
2 – 2″ 20 guage antique gold colored copper wire (for hooks)
2 – 2″ 20 guage antique gold colored copper wire (for beads)


Tools
Basic Tool Kit
Ring Mandrel or Sharpie marker (to create round bend for hooks)

Duration
30 minutes

Length: 1 1/2″

The Idea

To create the hook, take the 2″ wire and create a loop at one end. Wrap the wire around a cylindrical object, something like a permanent marker for the round bend. 

Take about a 1″ length wire and with chain nose pliers, bend over about 1/16″ wire over itself to create a headpin. Thread the glass bead through and close with a wire loop. Attach wired bead decorative wire and attach that to the hook. Create matching earring.
