String onto a 2-1/2 inch ballpin, one 7.5x3.5mm beaded snowflake copper bead, and one rectangle white with copper lampworked glass bead. Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire, creating a white rectangle with copper lampworked glass bead drop. Repeat to create two white rectangle with copper lampworked glass bead drops.

Repeat to create the following bead drops:

STEP 2
Form a simple loop on the ball end of a 2-1/2 inch ballpin. String one diamond twist white with copper lampworked bead onto the 2-1/2 inch ballpin. Form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire, creating a white rectangle with copper lampworked glass beading link.
