How to Make Wine Glass Charms

Wine glass charms are easy to create and customize, and great for any holiday or occasion.


Supplies

  • Champagne, Wine, or Margarita Glass(es)
  • Beadalon Ear Wires (size and color of your choice)
  • Beads of your choice and size
  • Jolee's Jewels Crystallized Elements (or charms of your choice)
  • Needle Nose Pliers

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.

For this tutorial, we will be using 5mm glass beads, Jolee's Jewels Crystallized Elements, and Large Gold Plated Beadalon Ear Wire Hoops to create the wine glass charm.

1.  Add beads and charm(s) to the ear wire in the desired pattern.



2. See the end of the ear wire that has the small opening? Bend it upwards (as shown in the photo).
 

3.  Lay the glass onto its side and add the ear wire to the stem. Grasp the ear wire with your fingers to close it, then use the needle nose pliers to bend the wire (that went through the opening) upwards to secure it.


Now, you're ready to serve drinks in style! Wasn't that easy?


These charms were made with Jolee's Jewels, crystals, and Pandora beads.
 
Jolee's Jewels Crystallized Elements were perfect for this project. We have them on sale at our Bonney Lake store for only $1.00 and a large variety to choose from but don't wait! These are available for a limited time.
