Designer Tips

  • Add bicone crystals to the head pins, and make wrapped loops directly onto the loops of the filigree.
  • For the top beaded pin, cut the ball off a ball-end head and make wrapped loops at each end.
  • Make your top loop perpendicular (90 degrees) to the bottom loop, so the earring hangs straight. If necessary, use 2 pairs of flat-nose pliers to adjust the angle after finishing the loops.
