1) Take the four filigrees and pair them off so that you have two filigrees, back to back. Open the connector loops at the base of the earwires and attach each to the uppermost loop on the paired filigrees.

2) Open the two jump rings and use each of these to attach a Siam Briolette to the bottom-most loop on each of the paired filigrees. Close the jump rings securely.

3) Take four of the headpins and thread on a Sunflower Bicone onto each. Make a simple loop on each of these headpins and attach these to the outermost side loops on the filigrees.

4) Take four more headpins and thread a Hyacinth Bicone onto each. Make a simple loop on each of these headpins and attach these to the loops directly beneath the loops that the Sunflower Bicones are attached to.

5) With the last four headpins, thread a Light Siam Bicone onto each. Make a simple loop on each of these headpins and attach these to the loops between the already attached Siam Briolette Pendants and the Hyacinth Bicones.

6) Squeeze equal amounts of epoxy onto a piece of paper. Mix up the epoxy with the toothpick (or popcicle stick) and then use tweezers to pick up a Fire Opal Flatback. Use a very small amount to coat the back of the flatback with epoxy and then place the flatback onto the center of the filigree. Repeat this same step for the other earring. While those are drying, repeat this step again, only this time, gluing the smaller Siam Flatbacks to the "diamond" that is surrounding the already glued Fire Opal Flatback. Make sure that all Flatbacks are glued in place on each of the earrings before allowing to cure for at least 24 hours. (you can gently move these to work on the other side of the earrings after about 15-20mins)

7) Flip the earrings over to repeat the gluing pattern for the other side. Allow the earrings to cure for some time before wearing (preferably a full day to cure completely).
