Tip: Allow the glue to dry overnight before wearing your earrings.

 

Filigree components are often used as connectors or links, but I wanted to come up with something a little out of the ordinary. I glued an earring stud on the back of each flower filigree to make post earring findings. Then for serious glitz, I dangled a sparkling crystal pendant from each.
