Step 5: BEADED HANDLE:
WIRE: I just tend to use what I have, but the best rule is that you want to be able to twist it and have it be sturdy. You also need to be able to put the beads on it. So, not too heavy and not too thin :o)
Stick one end of the wire INTO the purse through the hole and make a coil on the end.
The next step is to use your creativity and bead away.
When you have the handle complete and it is as long as you would like it, stick the other end through the hole INTO the purse and form another coil. You can keep coiling until all the slack is out of the wire.
