    I should. It can spin right now, and if I put a little drop of something sticky it will behave.

    really like this one, probably my favorite. Can you explain/show you wrapped the dragonfly on the bead (if I can be nosy?!)?

    You put the stone you want to wrap on top of the metal, both facing down. Make a mark, like with a white crayon, on where the edge of the stone lays on the metal piece sticking out. Use a round nose pliers to bend at the mark. You don’t bend everything all the way until you have the stone placed where you want. I got the instructions from a BeadStyle article.
