Topics: Wire, Wine Charms

Q.
I just bought some beads, charms and hoops to make wine charms. They look great, but the beads fall off easily. Do you have any suggestions for what I could do to fix this? I bought 25 mm, 24-gauge hoops. Thanks!

There are two ways to secure the beads on the memory wire loop: use round-nose pliers to make loops at the end of the memory wire, or finish the ends by gluing half-drilled beads onto the wire. Both of these techniques are shown in the ''Finishing Memory Wire Jewelry'' how-to video and illustrated instructions. - Molly Schaller, Jewelry-Making Expert
