I saw an Anthropologie knockoff on the Quiet Lion Art Blog and I decided to do a knockoff. Yes, a knockoff of a knockoff. Don't judge. Okay, so I have a lot of these simple glass beads, and a huge tangled mess of wire. Gaze upon the tangle. This is what happens when you don't take care of your wire. Be careful.
Anyway, I cut about 3 inches of the wire off, and flattened it out. I also gave it a little bit of a curve.
I then I put a little loop on the end of the wire by folding it over, and twisting the leftover wire around.
I don't know if you can see it, but the loop is there. Anyway, then I added the beads. I did it asymmetrically.
I then tied up the other end by trimming the wire and bended it over, and tucking the end into the last bead. Then I just added the chains.
It doesn't look much like the original, but it's different in a good way.
