Jesus Tears Icicle
by ShirleyT@CraftSayings.com

 

  • Slide a teardrop crystal onto a 12 (or shorter) piece of 18 gauge artistic silver wire.
  • Twist a small curl in the end with needle nose pliers.
  • Slide a rondelle or round crystal bead onto the wire, kinking the wire a little so that the beads line up.
  • Continue with different kinds of beads until you get the look you want.
  • Remember every icicle is different!
  • Bend and curl the wire at top as shown and trim any excess wire.
  • Add a metallic bow if desired.
  • Frosted beads and colorful beads also make pretty icicles. Make long ones and shorter ones.
  • Hang in a sunny window or near lights on a Christmas tree to watch the love glisten through!
