This project is absolutely great. It includes a recycling idea since we are using the used wine bottle corks. I had a Thanksgiving in mind when we made these so I choose lovely orange and brown beads. They goes great with copper wire and natural cork.

Introduction

You can make them for any holiday dinner party and they are inexpensive. Albina (albinasjewelry) and I made this project together during one of our creative get-together gathering

Materials And Tools Used

Pre-drilled wine corks
Wire 26ga and 20 ga
Beads of your choice
Mandrel, 1” diameter
Round nose pliers

NRII

Tutorial Directions

1. Cut piece of 20 a wire, 2 ft long. Slide the wire through the cork’s hole, center the cork. Place a cork against a mandrel and start wrapping the wire ends around the mandrel, feeding the wire ends through the cork’s hole.NRIII

2. Wrap the wire until you have 2” of wire ends coming out the cork. Using round nose pliers and chain nose (or flat nose) pliers, make spirals. Place the spiral so it is covering the hole.NRIV

3. Attach 26ga wire; wrap the ring, adding beads.NRV
