    Step 3

    Cut about 2 x 10” lengths of 26-gauge wire and attached to each side of the bead (over the wrapped wire) and weave the wire back and forth within the crinkled, sweet wrapper frame. Secure and cut off any excess. Create spirals out of the projecting 20-gauge wires (in step 3) and fold these over the wrapped wires underneath.

    Attach each side of the 'sweetie' pendant to a chain or cord to suspend as a necklace. I have made a front opening necklace with the clasps at the front.
