Description

I had some colorful glass for quite some time now and really had no clue what to do with it. Well I found it. These necklaces are simple just wrap some wire around the glass, add a jewelry ring and your ready.

Instructions

  1. Small dscn3006 1282422653

    Gather your materials. For the wire, I used 28 Gauge Steel wire. You will probably need around 30 inches of wire depending on how large your glass is.

  2. Small dscn3007 1282422786

    Your going to start by placing the end of the wire on the back of the glass, bending it towards the front.

  3. Small dscn3008 1282422853

    After bending it to the front bend it again towards the back. So now you should have two wires crossed.

  4. Small dscn3009 1282422954

    Continue twisting the wire until you have it exactly how you want it. Taking the wire that you have left, fold it under the other wires to secure it. You may need wires to pull it out.

  5. Small dscn3012 1282423087

    Cut off the extra wire.

  6. Small dscn3013 1282423113

    The glass should look like this when your finished.

    Take a wire ring and put it where you want your necklace chain to go. Add your chain and you are done!
