    Finish the cross by twisting the wires together and making a loop with the remaining wire.
    This cross was made with large hole beads and plastic-coated craft wire. It's great for kids or for those who need easier wire with which to work. You can make this with smaller glass beads and jewelry wire. You can also make it with thread and two-needles and seed beads.
    To wear it as a necklace, string it on a chain or cord. It also makes a nice ornament.
