Making Ornaments out of Beads
Hey everyone! I need your help... I was asked to create a holiday ornament for someone today that can be taken to an ornament exchange party on Friday!
Yikes! I'm guessing I was asked so I would make something using beads...
One idea that is not original, but it is a good one, is using about 4 or 5 loops of memory wire with a large/heavy bead on the bottom so when it is hung, all the loops seperate.
Maybe I could use this long orange CZ as the dangle, but I'm not sure it will be heavy enough...
The other idea I have is to create a simple dangle with 6 to 8 beautifully sparkly beads from large to small, packaging it in a nice organza bag with a matching pair of earrings. If I use the orange CZ above, I could use these smaller orange CZ's for the earrings...
Help!! Sorry for the short notice, but I GREATLY appreciate it! :)
