Technique

Step 1
Take the Swarovski head pin and thread the first section of the enamel flower. Place a small amount of glue on the back of the first flower tier and then thread the second tier. Place a bit more glue on the back of the second flower tier and then thread the hole in the middle of the 20mm filigree. Place a generous amount of glue behind the back of the 20mm filigree and thread the ring. Now place head down to dry. Check after 5 minutes to check that everything is drying the correct position. Now let dry for 12-24 hours.

Step 2
When dry. Cut the end of the head pin so it only has a 2cm tail. Now using your round nose pliers grab the very end of the head pin and start to coil the head pin up into a snail shell, continuing all the way back down the pin to the base. Bend the snail shell at a 90 degree angle so it sits flat.
