Tools and materials
Metal tube (like here)
Fold over ends
The steps were really simple, and I love how they can be open to variation with the layout and position of the beads. 1) Cut a piece of wire an inch or so longer than your metal tube. Make a loop on one end of the wire with the round nose pliers. 2) Slide onto through tube, then clip the wire to about 1 centimeter longer than the tube. 3) Curl the other end of the wire (still in the tube) into a loop. 4) Add the beads to the cord, then thread each end of the cord through the wire loops. 5) Fold the cord ends over each end of the cord. 6) Add rings and clasp. Happy making!
(PS-- in this project, the humble cord fold over end strikes again! Check them out in this bracelet and these earrings. Definitely worth the purchase, and a great multi-use item to have in your jewelry making kit!)
