1. Place three rondelles, one from each strand, on a headpin in order of size, from biggest to smallest. Top with a 4mm jonquil bicone.
2. At the top, use your round nose pliers to make a small loop, then coil the wire around itself a few times. Use your nipper tool to trim the excess wire.
3. To make earrings, simply dangle your Christmas tree charm from French wires.
The Chinese Crystal rondelles come on strands so you'll have plenty to make several pairs- a perfect holiday gift. Or make a matching bracelet! :) Have fun!
