I think this actually looks like a key to another dimension.  If you were to neatly place the smaller stones you could perhaps make your astrology sign?  Just a thought.

WHAT YOU NEED:

Read the Directions after the Jump…

HERE’S HOW:

1.     String the 60 safety pins on a piece of 7” long wire.
2.     Create a circle, twist the wire ends together and cut off the extra leaving about ½ of twisted wire.  This will tuck in between the safety pins.

3.     Glue your starburst of pins on to the circle of aluminum flashing with E-6000 and let dry.

5.     Glue your smaller flat back rhinestones in a random design around the starburst.

 6.     Place a jump ring on the end of one of the safety pins and on the center of your chain.
7.     Place jump rings on the end of your chain and a lobster claw for a closure.

8.     Place 3 safety pins on the remainder of the jump rings and hang from the bottom of the starburst like you see in the photo.
