    Add a drop of E6000 glue to the end of the silk ribbon and pinch it to the wire bangle.
    Begin wrapping the bangle with the ribbon taking care to keep the ribbon wide and flat against the bangle. Continue all the way around.
    At the end, tie the silk into a tight knot. If desired, leave a bit of ribbon as a dangle or make it into a tassel by shredding the ribbon.

    Thread 4-6 crystal beads onto the wire, more or less as desired. Begin tightly wrapping the wire 3 or 4 wraps close together and then begin moving around the bangle, spacing the beads at equal distances. For security, add an extra wrap of wire to each side of each bead to hold it in place. At the end again use 3-4 tight wraps of wire to finish the wrap. Snug each end with jewelry pliers to secure wire and tuck in any sharp ends.
