These were my materials. The beading wire is thin enough that I could cut it with scissors. I started by making the curvy side of the "a" and made the frame.
Then I simply strung the beads on it and then looped more wire in circles aroung the frame and as I went, I strung the beads on.
This is my finished "cury side". I then made the straighter side and curled the top together to make the end and again, strung the beads in circles aroung the frame.
and VOILA! My beaded "a" figurine!
