Cheri's Signature

  • Instructions
  • Supplies

Enhance the organic beauty of druzy beads with wire swirls. Cheri used three druzy beads together and swirled Artbeads Designer Wire around them for eye-catching style. You can showcase this look horizontally at the center of chain like Cheri did or dangle it vertically in earrings or a necklace. You can see more ideas for simple wire-wrapping in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
