Instructions
Step 1
Glue the face (11mm pearl) to the halo (15mm earring dangle).

Step 2
Using round nose pliers, make an open spiral at the end of each of the four 20-gauge wires, making sure the open spirals are different sizes.
Line up the straight ends of the 4 wires, so that the ends are parallel. Make a bundle at this end, using half-round wire to wrap 4 or 5 times to show. Trim the 4 wires to be nearly flush with the wrap wire.
