How to: select a flat piece of weathered glass and cut about thirty centimetres of beading wire. Wind the mid point of the wire around the end of some long nosed pliers (or a pencil) four times to create a loop then twist the wire under the loop to fix it.  Wrap the tails of the wire around the front and back of the glass overlapping and going north south east and west until the wire runs out. Tweak the wires with pliers to tighten them around the glass and tuck the loose ends under any crossovers or back around the top loop. Taking care with the hot fix took stick sparkly bits front and back as you choose then tie a length of ribbon so your lovely bauble can hang from the tree!
