Mr. Bone Jangles

PROJECT E122
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
He's oh so cute and oh so creepy! He's Mr. Bone Jangles, and he's articulated. He even has scary little fingers and toes! Impress your friends with this ultra-unique pair of Halloween earrings.
Instructions
Don't forget to do two of every instruction to make a pair of earrings! Cut a piece of wire about two and a half inches long and make a simple loop at one end.Onto that wire thread a skull bead (top of the skull facing the loop), an 11/0 delica, an ivory pearl, and six more 11/0 delicas. Create another simple loop and trim off excess wire. This is his torso.To make the arms, cut two pieces of wire about two inches long, and create a simple loop at one end of each.Onto each arm wire, thread a 6/0 cream seed bead, three 11/0 delicas, another 6/0 cream seed bead, and three more delicas. Make a simple loop and trim off excess wire.To make the legs, cut two more pieces of wire about two inches long and create a simple loop at one end of each.Onto each leg wire, thread a 6/0 cream seed bead, four 11/0 delicas, another 6/0 cream seed bead, and four more delicas. Make a simple loop and trim off excess wire.To make the fingers, cut eight pieces of wire at an inch long each. We gave him four fingers and toes on each hand and foot, but if you'd like, you can make it five.Make a tiny simple loop at one end of each of the pieces of wire and flatten the loop. Basically, you are just folding over the very end of the wire just enough so that the tiny 15/0 delicas don't slide off. Onto each finger wire thread four tiny 15/0 delicas. Create a small simple loop at the end of your beading on each finger and trim off excess wire. To make the toes, cut eight more pieces of wire at an inch long each.Once again, make a tiny simple loop at one end of each of the pieces of wire and flatten the loop.Onto each toe wire thread five tiny 15/0 delicas. Create a small simple loop at the end of your beading on each toe and trim off excess wire.To connect all of the parts, begin by opening the loop at the top of each arm (the loop by the 6/0 cream seed bead) and connecting them to the torso just above the lace agate bead. Gently close each loop once more.Open the loop at the top of each leg, thread them through the loop at the bottom of the torso and close again.Open the loops at the top of all of the fingers and toes, and add four of them to each loop at the end of each arm and leg, respectively. Close each loop again.Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.All designs © Beadaholique Inc.
