|Loïc likes making things with the brass wire I use for jewelry and sometimes he threads beads on it.
so that when I'm making nice feminine jewelry, weird creatures take shape beside me...like this quirky scorpion.
| Either as :
-a Halloween decoration : pin it on a curtain, for example
- as a brooch,in a smaller version: although for Halloween, we can always let ourselves go a little!

Surprise! Our spider and its web for computer background image, Halloween-style...
| - Tie the threads through their centers as shown in the diagram.
Thread the beads onto a length of wire, stop a third of an inch before the end. Then make a loop to hold the beads, by passing the end of the wire through the end bead. Kids may need some help with this bit...
Repeat for each thread.
| The little spider...
For a web, there's got to be a spider. Easy to make, but you've got to be meticulous about it, given its size.
You need nylon thread, which will help you make this 3D ball shape, black seed beads, 2 bright yellow seed beads for the eyes.
Start by threading 2 beads, bring them halfway along the thread. Next, thread one yellow, one black and one yellow bead. Pass the other end of the thread through these beads.
