Doing: Washing my car... it consists of me driving my car around in the rain. All clean!
Making: Lots of stuff for Black Friday, in case people want to avoid crowded malls. 3 new pudding bearlets (2 purin flavor, 1 strawberry flavor... available in my shop 11.26.08 at approximately 10:30 pm Hawai`i time), many bearlets in a new style, a mushroom, a catepillar, keychains etc. And hopefully I'll get to some reindeer and snowmen before Christmas is over!
1. Thread your bead onto the headpin. If the hole of the bead is too big to stay on the headpin, slip a sequin onto the headpin before you put the bead on... that way the sequin will act as a shiny stopper!
2. Using the roundnose pliers, bend the wire of the headpin at a 90˚ angle, leaving a little room between the bead (pushed all the way against the head of the headpin) and the bend. This way, you'll have some room to coil the wire down.
3. Hold and wrap the wire around the end of the roundnose pliers so that a loop is formed on the pliers, use the chainnose pliers with your other hand to wrap approximately 2-3 coils around the base wire, as close as possible to the bead. Snip off any excess wire.
4. Attach to anything using jump or split rings (if you are really good you can just wire wrap your bead onto a zipper or anything else right away, so you don't have to use jump or split rings).
5. Voila! Enjoy!
