I started with 20 gauge fine silver wire (all I had) and made the chain. Aren't these cute? they are like figure eight's. What I like about these is that you will never loose a flower. A good thing!
I thought about adding all the flowers before closing my loops but I wanted the loops to be perfect and knew the flowers would be in the way.
After I made the chain I selected all the flowers and crystals I was going to use and put them on sterling silver 1.5" headpins. This step of threading them all at once saves time.
Next step I did was to make a loop in all of the flowers. Again this saves time.
Next step I did was to add 1 row of flowers. I like adding the flowers one color at a time so I am not too overwhelmed by little sticks poking out all over the place.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll try making your own.
