I'm a massive Harry Potter fan and thought I'd give this a try. I really wanted it to not look shoddy and homemade and I'm fairly happy with it!
You could use any type of beads i just liked the 'sleak-ness' of these ones! I also used wire that came on a spool which made making the 'resurrection stone' part a lot easier because the wire was already in a circle but i don't think it would be too much more difficult with straight wire.
TO MAKE THE INVISIBILITY CLOAK:
Cut 12cm of wire and curl up one end (this is so that the beads wont fall off the end as you thread). Thread the beads onto the wire. (Try not to bend the wire because this will make threading the beads very difficult!)
Move the beads along the wire so that there is about 1.5cm of wire at each end. Bend the wire ends to right angles like in the picture.
Twist the wire ends together securely. When you're twisting the ends together, dont do it too tightly... By this i mean make sure that when secured the beads can slide just a little on the wire. This is so there is room to wrap wire onto this shape later. Bend the wire twice, at 3cm intervals, to make a triangle.
TO MAKE THE RESURRECTION STONE:
Cut 9cm of wire and bend one end (so the beads wont fall off!) Thread beads until they are about 5cm long. Twist the wire ends together securely, but again not too tight! Cut the ends of the wire and bend them so that they wont scratch you when you're wearing it!
With the round nose pliers, roll the ends of the wire to create a loop. This is where the necklace chain will go through. Make sure that the loop is big enough for the chain to fit!!
TO MAKE THE ELDER WAND:
(this is the tricky bit to explain!I hope you can make sense of it!!)
Cut another 9cm of wire secure one end at the top of the triangle.
Put the circle inside the triangle and lay the straight piece of wire over the top (like in the picture).
With a texta, make a mark on the straight wire where it meets the top of the circle. Thread beads up to this mark. Wrap the wire a few times around the top of the circle. Make another mark on the straight wire where it meets the bottom of the circle. Thread beads to this point. Make one more mark on the straight wire where it meets the base of the triangle. Thread beads to this mark. Secure the wire to the base of the triangle.
After that very confusing explanation this is what it should look like!
Cut the end of the wire and bend it again, to avoid scratches!!
Gently pull the charm so that the shapes sit a bit better.
Thread the necklace chain through the loop at the top of the triangle...
