And what Harry Potter nerd wouldn’t love to be wearing their very own personal golden snitch?!

Step 9-

Place the bead onto one of the headpins. And cut the head pin, using the round nosed pliers, so that you can create a loop above the bead.

Step 10-

Create a loop using your round nosed pliers above the bead. Make it large enough so that you can also put the two wings charms on the wire as well.

Step 11-

Open the loop by taking your round nosed pliers and pulling the end of the wire toward you. Once it is open slide on your two wing charms. Make sure that they are going the same direction. Close the loop back up so everything will stay in place.
