Designer Tips

  • Create a colorful beaded drop for each wine glass marker, using gemstones or other beads of your choice.
    New to jewelry-making? See Basic Jewelry-Making Technique Sheet (PDF) for how to make wrapped loops using eye pins.
  • Add an oval jump ring to each charm so they face the proper direction (twist sideways to open and securely close each jump ring).
  • Add approximately 10 seed beads to each hoop, then a charm and beaded drop, then 10 more seed beads.
  • Use chain nose pliers to grip the wire-end of the hoop approximately 2mm (1/16") from the end of the wire, and bend sharply upwards 90-degrees.
  • Click bent end into the flattened drilled portion of the manipulating hoop.
