It could go on a key ring, but really it’s more of a fidget toy: I just like the sound the beads make when I play with them 🙂
It started off as a way to practise manipulating wire with jewellery pliers, putting beads on head pins and creating a loop to hang them from. The technique is clearly demonstrated in this Beaducation video.
But I like to make use of anything I create if I can, so I grabbed a complementary mix of beads, put them all on individual head pins with loops and hung them on jump rings. Then I made a short central chain of purple jump rings and arranged the beads along it.
Simple but satisfying.
