Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with a great selection of tiny beads. I like to use tiny faceted gemstones, but I imagine you could also do this project with seed beads too. String 4-6 beads on each headpin and wire wrapping a loop to make them into a charms.
Step 2:
Layout your headpins in the order that you want to attach them to the chandelier focal.
Step 3:
Place each grouping onto a jump ring and attach to the appropriate hole placement on the the chandelier focal.

    Ali – I love your colorful design. Hadn’t seen the bird chandelier before. Is that a thistle in the background behind the birdie?
