Designer Tips

  • Add crystals, angels wing beads and spacers to head pins and finish with a simple loop.
  • Because the large end of the dome beads are concave, it can be tricky to measure and cut the headpin for making your loop. Press thumb or other finger against the head of the pin, to pull it up to the inside of the dome for best results.
  • Use any ear wire you like with these designs.
  • These designs can be made as a pendant, by only making one.
