They were for my Winter Solstice Yoga Swap partner. I only made two, because the darn shrinky dinks kept warping. I wanted circles, but they wanted to be ovals. So after wasting 5 out of 6 sheets of shrinky dinks I finally gave up. I took the two best looking and gave them to my partner. Sumthin is better than nuthin right?
CJ's Knitting Basket as a guideline I made three sets.
wrapped loop, I just don't like them (or I'm lazy). Instead I made a circle and cut the excess.
I used chain nose pliers to make the loops. They didn't turn out as well as they would have with round nose pliers, so I'm definately going to invest in some of those. Round nose pliers also would have made it a lot quicker too. With the chain nose pliers I had to make a lot of little bends the get a circular shape.
crimping bead (see the dark colored rings in the supplies picture). Once again (because I'm a cheapskate) I didn't have the right tool and used my chain nosed pliers instead, so the crimping beads are squished flat.
The third set is a gift and will be revealed later this weekend...
I got all my supplies at Bead World
