How to create a flower with top drilled pear drops

create a flower with top drilled pear drops

Step One

Thread five beads onto approx 40cms of 0.4mm wire leaving one end about 14cms, pull beads together and secure with a overhand knot.

Step Two

Take the longer length of wire and weave under and over alternative petals until two wires are showing over each petal.

Step Three

Secure both wires by wrapping around the weave in between the petals.

Step Four

With the longer length of wire add a round bead for the centre of the flower and secure again in between two petal's.

Step Five

Using your round rose pliers make a wrapped loop about 1.5cm out from the flower. Twist the two wires together and secure with one or two wraps between the petals. Repeat with the other wire. Now you can connect your flower with jump rings to chain etc.

Step Six

Or alternatively trim the wires after step 4 then wrap beading thread in between petal's at the back of the flower.

Tip

Use clear plastic tubing or gizmo coils on each side of your flower on beading thread to space the beads away from the flower so that it sits nicely when stringing the rest of your design.
