- 22-gauge craft wire
- 12 glass seed beads
- Round nose pliers
- Chain nose pliers
- Wire cutters
- Leaving wire on spool, string 12 glass seed beads onto wire.
- Use round nose pliers to make a loop with the end of wire. Use chain nose pliers to make a 90-degree bend after loop about ¼-inch from first bend.
- Use your hands to free-form your bead(s), wrapping wire around ¼-inch piece, forming the core of bead. Continue free-form wrapping, occasionally sliding down a seed bead, until you’ve used all 12 seed beads and wire bead is desired size and shape.
- Position the wire on side opposite loop and trim the wire to 1-inch. Use round nose pliers to form another loop, tucking end of wire into bead. Trim excess wire if necessary.
