Holding the wires together at the middle point, thread one 8x13mm Czech glass cube on to one wire only, positioning the cube at the halfway point. Twist the wires together once at this middle point to hold the cube at this position and then take the unthreaded wire around the cube and wrap around threaded wire immediately after the cube. Repeat the wire wrap at the opposite side of the cube. Step 2 Onto the main (wire threaded with cube) wire, thread on one 6mm aquamarine bicone, dragonfly charm and another 6mm aquamarine bicone. Take the secondary wire over this sequence and wrap around other wire to secure in place, as before (Photo 2). Tools Chain nose pliers Round nose pliers Wire cutters 2
