Retired - Twisted Flower Suncatcher

PROJECT C2007
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Hang this suncatcher in your window this summer to bring a cascade of color into your home.
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 topaz, one orange teardrop, one 3mm crystal, four amethyst/sapphire twist beads, and one 3mm 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!
