Free Tutorial: Wire Wrapped Clover Charm

Good ol' St. Patty's Day is just a few weeks away! I'm a proud Irish lass myself, so I wanted to share something fun. I created this sweet wire-wrapped clover charm. Isn't it adorable? I'm showing you how to make one yourself, in case you want to add a little luck o' the Irish to your jewelry creations. Clovers aren't just for St. Patrick's Day or the Irish, you know? They are a universal symbol of good luck any day of the year. Incorporate a clover in your jewelry designs to add a wish of luck to the wearer. This charm could be used as a pendant for a necklace, a charm for a bracelet or make two for the cutest little earrings. For my clover charm, I made a braided cord of Irish waxed linen, of course! What else? :)

Here's what you'll need:

3 green 7x7mm puff teardrop beads
18" of brass 24 gauge wire

Chain nose pliers
Round nose pliers
Wire cutters

Start by making a wrapped loop 8" from the end of the wire.
Follow the picture instructions below to create your clover charm.
Have fun!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
Happy St. Patty's Day!


  1. Thanks for thei tutorial! The pics are so helpful for us visual learners.

  2. I love all your clear pictures Miss Erin. I would love to make the cord as well. I know to you that seems like an easy thing, but to me that is huge. I can't wait for your book so that I can get the scoop on how to do those sort of things! Thanks for sharing this great tutorial!
    Enjoy the day!
    Erin (the other ;-)

  3. Erin, what a cute project!!! I love how you made the wire wrapped clover. I was just working on St. Patrick's day crafts yesterday with my youngest son, and we have clovers on our mind already too. I'm not sure I have any puffed teardrop beads...will have to check. This really looks like fun, and I'm with Erin P.H., I love the cord just as much.

  4. Really cute, wonderful tutorial. Thank you for sharing.

  5. How did I miss this lovely one? Thanks for letting me know! I just added it to the collection over on my blog.

  6. Thanks for the tutorial! I made one yesterday and it was so much fun! Now I have something really special to sport on St. Paddy's Day.
