I make this with my 4th graders. They put 3 beads on a 2 1/2 foot #22 gold wire.(Twist the last 1/2 inch of the wire up so it makes an angle to hold the three beads.) Then they wrap the wire around a marker. They adjust it and wrap it in three places. Then add a jump ring. We give it to Mom on black crochet yarn. It's a beautiful gift!
