Watch the Video

Hey everyone! In this video I will show you how to make a beaded bead with glass and crystal rondelles, and round seed beads. We’ll then add them to a segment of wire, with additional beads on either side, and configure wire-wrapped loops. In doing so, we will recreate the beaded links I shared previously, which were made from contents of the September 2022 Bargain Bead Box subscription (SIGN UP | Coupon: OPAL2).
