- Round-nose pliers
- Chain-nose or crimp pliers
- 3 1 1/2" Headpins
- 4 Glass Heart Beads (We used 6mm Emerald)
- GS Hypo Cement (Or any clear drying glue)
- With 2 of the headpins add a heart, trim wire and make a small loop with the tip of the roundnose pliers, as small as you can.
- With the remaining headpin add one heartbead, the 2 looped heartbeads and the last heart bead, making sure all the points are facing the center.
- Wire wrap the the end of the headpin to make the pendant.
- Place down on a flat surface and glue the center of the clover to keep the beads in place. Before you glue consider how you will use the clover and direct the loop acccordingly.
