- Add crystals and rhinestones to head pins and make wrapped loops. (See technique for making wrapped loops.)
- Attach to earring posts with jump rings.
TIP: Glue the mounted crystal rhinestone in place on the head pin so that it doesn’t spin around.
- Use a head pin to attach the galactic crystal to the flower side of both toggle clasps. Cut off the head, add the crystal and make wrapped loops on each end. (See technique for making wrapped loops.)
