|Rogue in the bench|
I wasn't working at the bench today, just some bead work. I've been working on some key chains lately. I have a thing for keychains. Not like I need anymore, I have so many that I have collected from my travels I keep them in tins in the closet and bring them out to change up every once in awhile.
I found these charms at Michael's some time ago and thought they were fun/ny, so I went to work.
I went with a yellow focal bead with a floral print and found some accent beads. I decided on gold tone crimp beads.
I wanted to double the beading wire, for more strength, so I looped it through a small split ring and ran it back through the crimping bead. (pay no attention to the unmanicured nails)
I used wire from SoftFlexcompany in champagne. Since part of the wire will be visible, I wanted it to be pretty. They have some quality wire in a wide range of beautiful colors. check them out.
stringing all the pieces together...
once strung together, I ran the wire through a crimp bead, through the charm, and back through the beads for strength, just like at the beginning.
crimping on the other end to finish it off
VOILA! A fabulous fancy new key chain!
How about you? whatcha makin' now?
