Follow the same method with the other three inch headpin stringing a large saucer bead, purple silk bead, large saucer bead, picasso roundel, small saucer bead, picasso roundel and a small saucer bead.

Step two: Take a two-inch eye pin and string an amber roundel, blue silk bead followed by an amber roundel. Trim excess wire and make a simple loop while attaching the dragonfly charm to one loop. Using the same method string on the last eye pin a saucer bead, picasso roundel, saucer bead, picasso roundel and another saucer bead.

Step three: Connect the two dangles with the picasso roundels with the scroll bead on bottom. Use three jump rings to dangle from the silver link and attach each dangle to those jump rings.
