Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Items you will need.
Step 2:
Create a simple loop, this will be the top of your icicle. This is where you will want to use your round nose pliers. I used around 7.5" wire to start with.
Step 3:
String on your beads, I laid my beads out first in the order I wanted them.
Step 4:
To finish the end just create a small loose and wrap the extra wire, trim as needed. Add a tassel or charm from this loop.

    Lovely and would be in any color scheme, but in this icy aqua palette it’s exquisite.

    Gorgeous,and I love the Frozen Seas theme. I agree they would be great on the tree,and the windows would be pretty too. I’ve been looking for a door decoration for my apt,instead of the traditional wreath. We have fire laws, and I dislike fake pine. Yuk.
    Thinking of doing these on a graduated scheme, and hanging them from a decorated coat hanger. I have a ton of Lima Glass beads. the quality does look expensive. I’ve always said the green especially looks like green quartz. I admire your creative skills,and so appreciate the inspiration. It means a lot to me. I lost my “mojo” for a bit.
    Cheers to you and hapy holiday!!
