Wink Any Suggestions On How To Construct This Hand Jewelry?

Original artwork
Cosplayer's photo

I want to make this hand jewelry piece as part of a Lineage 2 elf cosplay. I was going to use wires for the beads, and worbla to make the star in the center.
But how can I connect the wire/beads to the star securely? Is it possible that I can somehow stick the wire ends into the worbla piece and they'll actually stay securely?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, thank you!

I'd start with a wire ring and attach the spokes to it, then sandwich the ring between two worbla pieces for the star, and assemble from there.

Any wire going into another material needs a terminus to keep it from coming out.
I did christmas ornaments out of Sculpey and used a curved paper clip as my loop. Wedged into the center of the clay before baking, the U part made a perfect terminus.

You can do a loop, a T, an L, or even just a zig-zag before heating/ baking/ gluing your material(s). I'd adhere the wires inside the star first, and have each one about five times longer than you need before stringing all the beads on. Then you have plenty to work with to finish up the piece.

Last, these guys are awesome: http://www.firemountaingems.com/
they have nice tutorials on their site, they sell eeeevvvveeeerrrryyyyttthhhiiinnnggg you could possibly need and if you call them, a real human answers the phone!
