December 2008 Beaded Clarinet Charm Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month, I would like to feature the instruction on a beaded clarinet (musical instrument) charm made with Japanese glass seed beads and Swarovski crystal using the right weave technique.

Beaded Clarinet Charm

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.
