    I have a very similar pendant that has been hanging around for at least 2 years and never knew how to use it. You have given me an idea. Thanks.

    How did you attach the pendant?

    Sandra Martinez says:

    I used regular beading wire with french boullion, thru the pendant up thru the beads, then separate to string the strands.

    Sorry for taking so long to answer, Sweet Chick. French buillon is a tiny coil of wire that you thread your beading wire into to protect it like a wire protector. It is flexable tho and you cut the length you need off the length that you buy. I use very sharp sizzors (I know that’s spelled wrong, but hey…) to cut it. You need a clean cut. Hope that answers your question. You can look it up on Fire Mountain Gems on line. I think they also have a how to use video.
