1. You will need a grouping of Natural Brass 10mm Standard Washers.

2. Place washers onto Lily Damask DecoEmboss Die to reflect the symmetrical pattern.

3. Carefully close the embossing folder die and crank it through BIGkick machine one time.

4. Use the white side of Metal Reliefing Block to highlight the raised areas.

5. Stack embossed washers on each side of Lampworked Boro Glass Caterpillar Bead and string two 6 inch pieces of 18g Half Round Artisan Copper Wire through holes. Be sure the flat side of wire if facing outward, so once you bend the pieces the rounded side is showing along the washer and bead.

6. Cross over the wire tails and being to create coils to secure. Form a wrapped loop with remaining piece of wire and repeat on opposite site. Use Flush Cutters to trim any excess wire.
