Every year I like to do a simple, Christmas-themed wire project. This year I found these super fun, very inexpensive star-shaped pony beads and they obviously were just dying to be at the top of a tree! The tutorial is for the pendant shown, but instructions are included for an alternate version you can use as a tree ornament or earrings! It's like three tutorials in one. With this technique you can very quickly create a simple, shiny, playful little tree that you can give as a gift, or wear anywhere this holiday season. Using only a single wire and following the the accompanying close-up, sharp photos and diagrams, you'll be admiring your new pendant (or ornament, or earrings!) in no time. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use pliers. Manipulate wire with your hands.
