Firework Suncatcher

PROJECT C2006
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Create a beautiful firework to celebrate this summer and let colorful light pour into your home with this fun suncatcher.
Instructions
  1. Please watch our video: How to Make Colorful Suncatchers with Wire Frames.
  2. From what you learned in the video, string on the beads to each wire spoke in the following order: one 3mm crystal, one 6mm crystal, one 6mm cobalt blue, one 6mm crystal, one 6mm ruby siam, one 8mm crystal, one 8mm cobalt blue, one 8mm crystal, one 8mm ruby siam, and one 8mm crystal.
  3. Take your round nose pliers and make a simple wire loop at the end of the spoke. If you would like you can use crimping pliers to secure the loop at the end.
  4. Continue to add beads to the other spokes and finishing with a simple loop.
  5. From the video, cut a length of illusion cord, 8 inches long. Thread it through one of the simple wire loops. Tie a double overhand knot forming a loop to hang your suncatcher.
  6. All done!
