Off came the gold stuff. And you can see the cystals I am going to pair with the charm.
Here is my design. I was also going to use some bronze spacer seed beads. I used 2 jump rings to keep the peacock facing forward. It was pretty easy to string.
Now to add fasteners-I am going to use a magnetic clasp. Here is a hint on how to get your crimp beads crimped with a magnetic clasp... let it attach to something magnetic, THEN crimp. Or you will have lots of problems!
I used 2 crimp beads on both sides. And weaved it through the nearby beads to hide the string.
