Brooch with Czech Glass Druk Beads, Acrylic Cabochon and Gold-Plated Brass Cones, Focal and Pendant Setting
Step 1
Using chain-nose pliers gently flatten a gold-plated 16mm fancy filigree cone into an oval positioning the crease of the two sides of the cone in the center.

Repeat two times for a total of three flattened oval bead cones.
Step 2
String onto a gold-plated 2-1/2 inch headpin:
  • One 8mm round black opaque glass bead
  • One 6mm round black opaque glass bead
  • One flattened oval cone
  • One 4mm round black opaque glass bead
  • One flattened oval cone
  • One 4mm round black opaque glass bead
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire.
Step 3
Using G-S Hypo cement adhesive attach one 18x13mm cameo cabochon upside down onto the center of a 24x19mm gold-plated rope pendant setting with the loop on the bottom. Using chain-nose pliers gently fold the prongs over the edge of the cameo.
Step 4
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers open the loop on the bead and flattened oval cone drop created in Step 2. Pass it through the loop on the bottom of the pendent setting. Close the loop.
Step 5
Place a thin layer of E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive on the back of a gold-plated 15x8mm 3-row filigree finding and attach it the bottom point of the gold-finished 30x30mm fancy star focal. Repeat to attach a second gold-plated 15x8mm 3-row filigree finding approximately half way down, on top of the first gold-plated 15x8mm 3-row filigree finding.

Place a thin layer of E-6000 on the back of the gold-plated rope pendent setting and attach it to the center of the gold-finished 30x30mm fancy star focal with the top of the pendant setting sitting on the top round edge of the star.

Repeat to attach gold-plated "pewter" wing charms with the tips of the wings going in an upward direction on both sides of the bottom of the pendant setting on each side of the bead and flattened oval cone drop.

Place a thin layer of E-6000 on the back of a gold-plated 15x8mm 3-row filigree finding and over the point where the wings come together and the top of the bead drop. Repeat to attach a second gold-plated 15x8mm 3-row filigree finding approximately half way down on top of the first gold-plated 15x8mm 3-row filigree finding.
