A holiday cocktail ring - with a giveaway!

For one of my projects this month for Prima Bead, I made a holiday cocktail ring...a cute cluster of mini crystals in red, green and clear.

Meet Balsa, my lovely hand model, lol. Anyway, what I love about these bicone beads is that they are ready-to-go right from the package - they come pre-loaded on to little silver head pins with eyes at the top. All I had to do was string them on to a long piece of silver wire, then I gathered them into a cluster right in the center of the wire.

I bent the wire in half and ran both ends down through the center of a flat connector charm.

Because I started with a super long piece of wire, I was able to loop the ends together and do a coiled wire wrap so it's sturdy and smooth.

I'm happy with how it turned out; it makes a lovely holiday cocktail ring!

Now for the giveaway - I have a lovely selection of Christmas beads and charms from Prima up for grabs! One lucky winner will be picked on Saturday, September 28 - good luck!
