Step 5 Cut a 5cm length of wire. Thread one end of the wire through one of the end loops of Step 3. Make a wrapped loop. Thread on the following beads: one bead cap, one rondelle, one bead cap. Make a wrapped loop. Trim the wire end. Repeat this Step for the opposite side. Step 6 Cut another 5cm length of wire. Thread one end through one of the end loops of Step 4. Make a wrapped loop. Thread on the following beads: one seed bead, one 32/0 bead, one seed bead. Make a wrapped loop. Trim and wire end. Repeat for the opposite side. Step 7 Make bead baubles: Cut a short length of wire. Wrap the end around your round nose pliers several times to create a coiled end. Thread on one rondelle bead. Make a wrapped loop. Trim the wire end. Cut another short length of wire. Make a wrapped loop at one end. Thread one random bead. Creatively wrap the wire around the bead, to engage the bead. Cut the excess wire. Repeat this Step for the last beads. Step 8 Open a 4mm jump ring and add the bead baubles. Use a jump ring to connect the bead baubles to the wrapped loop on the leaf pendant. Step 9 Cut the ribbon into two equal lengths. Tie one end of the ribbon to the end wrapped loop. Repeat for opposite side. If desired, you may add a clasp to the end of the ribbon or just tie it to secure.
