Designer Tips

  • Use a tapered flush-cutter to trim the loop off leaf charm to shorten stem. Create a new loop that is closer to the leaves of the charm.
  • Create a small coil of 14-gauge copper wire to secure pumpkin bead (on the bottom). Wrap the top of the pumpkin, sliding the leaf charm onto the wire before making the top loop.
  • Patina the copper wire, bead, and leaf charm and seal before assembling.
  • Create 24-gauge wire coils and attach them by wrapping around base of pumpkin attaching the hogan bead and crystal dangles to these coils as you wrap.
