Floral Fusion Glass Flower p. 14
Designer: Claire Humpherson
STEP 1. Cut a 10cm piece of wire. Curl the top using round nosed pliers and add a large drop, placing the wide end towards the curl.
STEP 2. Repeat step 1 until you have 4 more large drops (5 in total), 5 small drops and 3 pearls.
STEP 3. Hold the pearls together, keeping the pearls close to the curls at the top of the wire. Twist all 3 wire ‘stalks’ together. Place the smaller drops outside the pearls and twist together with the pearls. Finally, add the large drops and twist the whole lot together.
STEP 4. Reposition your beads to make a flower shape you are happy with. This wire is quite easy to bend and move. When you are happy, wrap your twisted stalk around a pen or pencil to make a loop to attach to the cord (for the cover design). Wrap the ends back around the base to secure and cut off any excess wire.
