How to Make a Copper and Bead Busines Card Holder

Today Albina from AroundBeads will show you how to make a business card holder/display.


You will need:

· 16”(40cm) of 14ga round dead soft wire( you may use 16ga half hard wire as well).

· Beads with large hole (optional)

· Round nose pliers

· Wire cutters

· Flat nose pliers

Step 1: Straighten and then cut the 14ga round dead soft wire. Measure and mark the wire in 2”, 2”, 2”, 1”, 2”, 1”, 2”, 2”, and 2”. Find the center 2” section and bend the wire at 90 degree angle at one of the marks.Step 2: Slide the beads on the 2” section (optional). Make second 90 degree bend, so both wire ends are parallel and have “П” shape.

Step 3: Using round nose pliers, holding at 1” mark, bend the wire on an angle 30° as shown (you don’t need to be precise).

Step 4: Repeat step 3 with another wire end. Make sure that the wires run parallel.

Step 5: At the next 2” mark, make 45 degree bend (again, you don’t need to be precise), so the wire has Z-shape. Make sure that all three segments of “Z” lie in the same plane.

Step 6: Make 90° bends towards the outside, so the “Z” and the right angles lie in perpendicular planes. Well, I hope it is not too much geometry for you.

Step 7: Using round nose and flat nose pliers make spirals from 2” “left-over” wire ends.

Step 8: Adjust the wire(s) if necessary. Place your business cards in your new card holder.
