Hi, this is Kat with beadaholique.com and can get this kit at beadaholique.com so let me show you what you'll get when you purchase your kit from beadaholique.com and to cord ends and two jump rings now with each color we do have this in a variety of colors on our website with each color you'll get different charms so you can really choose what suits your personality the mist you'll also get a tube of e6000 to complete your project not included in the kit you'll need a pair of chain nose pliers a pair of round nose pliers and just a little scrap of wire to help you apply your glue the first step you'll notice is we want to create this beautiful memory wire coil so that when you wear it it retains its shape so first of all I want to show you that there is a core inside of this braided cork it's a little plastic round sort of tubing and what we're going to do is we're going to thread the memory wire through this tubing so go ahead and pick up your piece of memory wire and all you're going to do is just place it inside and just start it and just sort of scooch it in there and you'll notice that it'll take pretty easily actually if it starts to get caught just kind of move it around it'll start to take its own shape and if you want you can use a pair of pliers just to sort of help you feed it through and you'll notice the cork is sort of coming into that nice round form and all you're doing is just threading it through that tubing so as you get towards the end it helps to sort of make that coil with your hand and now just use your prior to sort of tap it in there because we don't want any part of that wire sticking out and again just sort of make that coil and there we go now you can't see the wire anymore and it's officially in there so now what we're going to do is I'm going to use a little scrap of paper just to make sure that the glue doesn't get on my work surface and I'm going to add a little bit of glue there I'm going to take my scrap wire get a little bit of glue on there good amount we want it to have a nice strong hold and i'm going to take one of my cord ends and i'm just going to place the glue make sure you don't have any strays their place the glue inside that cavern right there inside that cord end and go ahead and just make sure that it gets on all sides and just make sure that you're not adding so much glue that it will come out and over the sides but if you do it's very easy to take off and I'll show you how to do that but now we're going to go ahead and take the cork and squeeze it in there it should fit in nicely just make sure that you kind of sometimes you just need to pinch it a little bit there you go and just give it a nice push make sure it goes all the way down to the end there and like I said we have a little bit of glue but you can just actually just kind of pick that off and it's gone so now we're just going to repeat that with our second side here I'm going to probably need a little bit more glue we go take my second cord end my scrap of wire get a nice bit of glue there e six thousand tends to be a little stringy but it's all right so now I'm just going to get it inside the cord end and just sort of swirl it around there make sure it gets on all sides and in the bottom I'm going to take my cord end and place it on the cork and just sort of make sure that it goes all the way down there we go you'll feel when it gets to thee to the end there so now we have our cord ends that are all glued and ready to go so all we have left to do is attach our two charms so taking one jump ring I'm going to hold it with your chain nose pliers here and take your round nose pliers and just sort of pry that open going to add on my little birdie charm here and i'm going to add it to my cord end just to the loop there and just kind of hold that there and now all i want to do is just readjust my pliers so i can close that nice and tight and just give it a little pinch make sure it's nice and seamless there and now we have our bird charm attached and now to the other side you're going to repeat the same process take your chain nose plier and your round nose plier just pry that jump ring open add on our feather charm and put it through the loop of the cord end and close our jump ring a nice little pinch make sure it is closed nice and tight and there you have it that is how to make the exclusive beadaholique.com in eight different colors with various different charms and we also have gold and silver finishes for your personal preference so you can buy all of these supplies in a beautiful kit at beadaholique.com you
