  3. To add dimension to circles, place one at a time in the palm of your hand. Press in the center of the circle with your thumb.

  4. I also like to use the eraser end of a pencil to press along the outside edge which gives more dimension too.

  9. Glue rhinestones in place. Let dry.Insert jump rings through holes. To create headpiece, attach jump ring to chain. To create earrings, attach fishhook earring findings. For my headpiece, I also created smaller glittered pendants to hang on my headpiece chain. To wear the headpiece, use bobby pins to pin into hear.
