Technique

Step 1 – Take the owl cabochon and glue them to your hoop filigree.
Allow to dry.

Step 2 – Take 1 x head pin with ball and thread 1 x 4mm bicone and
1 x lucite flower cup. Take the head pin and thread it through one of
the holes in the filigree next to the owl making sure the flower sits in
the front. Gently loop the wire and then stick it back through one of the filigree
holes. Use your flat nose plier to help pull it through. Once the wire is
tight, cut and finish flushed.

Step 3 – Take 1 x eye pin and thread 1 x fluted fire-polish bead. Cut
1cm from the bead and start to form a loop before closing picking up
the top loop of the hoop from the previous step. Take 1 x ear hook
and gently open the bottom loop and thread the other side of the eye
pin. Close.

Step 4 – Repeat step 2 & 3 to complete the other side of the earring.
