I finally finished off the wine bottle sparkler with glass chips in the bottle. It wont blow over now LOL

I finished 2 knife sparklers, and am pleased with how they came out. Initially I had the wire way too long, and it drooped too much. I still havent gotten crimp beads though - I keep forgetting them every time I go to the store LOL And I think the acrylic beads look fine - and so much lighter!

The blue & clear look very refreshing in the bottle "COOL" with the pretty beaded wires. Like the knife too! Jan

They are all very pretty! I have seen handcrafted sparklers at "boutiques" for $40+. They weren't any prettier than yours. I would never have guessed that they are acrylic beads, they are so sparkly! The acrylic would probably hold up better outside too.

Beautiful, here I am still thinking about how to do these and here you pop in with 3 already made. Three cheers for you, you did a great job.

The wires are attached to the back of the handle. Not a very neat job by my DH, but it does the trick! He welded a piece of copper tubing on the knife, then welded the wires into that piece.
Thanks everyone, these are fun, especially the shopping-for-the-beads part LOL

You are really getting the hang of making the sparklers now. I love the wine bottle one, what a cool idea!
