Designer Tips

  • Since the inside of the cone is hollow, place one of the faceted beads on the headpin before stringing the cone. Next add the wings, head, and halo. This helps keep the parts all lined up correctly.
  • You can alternately use a small gunmetal bead such as 26-464-9 or 26-819-04-9 inside the cone.
  • Make a simple loop at the top, and add to ear wire. New to jewelry-making? See Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF) for step-by-step instructions on making loops, and tips for opening and closing loops.
