Step 3
Take a head pin and thread a 4mm violet bicone, trim 1cm from the bead and start to form a simple loop, before closing add to the third bottom hole of the left of the filigree leaf.

Step 4
Keep adding bicone dangles in alternative colours on the left side of the filigree leaf working your way up. Repeat until there is in total 7 dangles attached to the side of the leaf.
