Credit goes to @tamdoll on Twitter for this great craft business tip! Just “cap” this finding around your favorite 10- to 12mm bead. It makes a fine addition to a charm bracelet, or earrings… Here’s another style that we offer:

    Thanks for linking back to me, was “magical” to think of another idea for something! (Ok, I know, that was just a bit corny.)

    Just stumpled upon this post — love the Aladdin’s Lamp Earrings! Such a fun and innovative way of using the aquiline beads. I recently got interested in making miniature perfume bottles of beads so this I fell for.
