Sweet Simple Metal Bow Necklace Tutorial

I've been seeing these sweet little wire metal bows everywhere now, 
and I have always thought they were just adorable!
So I sat down to see if I could create my own little version.
I really thought it turned out just darling, soo I'm sharing the tutorial with you! ♥
~Flat nose pliers (with wire cutter)
~Lobster Clasp & Jump Rings
~Thick metal wire
 (I found this cute colored wire at Walmart craft section)
~Round Nose Pliers *Not Pictured/Optional
Step One: Roll out a length of wire (DO NOT CUT)
Step Two: Make a loop
Step Three: Make another loop around (same as tying your shoe)
Step Four: Take the length of wire thats still attached to the rest of the roll
and wrap it TWICE around the center of the two loops.
 Step Five: This is what your bow should look like so far.
Step Six: NOW cut the wire, with the flat nose pliers.
Step Seven: *optional* Use round nose pliers to curl up the dangling wire.
Step Eight: Use your flat nose pliers to open your jump ring and attach your bow to the chain.
 Depending on the length you cut your chain, you may or may not need the lobster clasp. 
I usually cut mine at 18 inches, which if you do that length you will need to add the lobster clasp,
But if you cut it longer (say 22 in) you wont need to add a clasp, you can just pull the necklace over your head!

Here is what it looks like on:
Simple and Sweet!
I'm loving it.
What do you think??
