Select the filigree you are going to use as your centerpiece backing. If you are making a bracelet, you will first bend your
filigree so it has the same curve as the bracelet.
2. Set all the stones you are going to be using to create your
centerpiece design. In this example, a 25X18 Black Diamond facted stone is being used. It is set in the pronged setting so
no glue is needed. The two, 10X8 flatback Amethyst stones are set by gluing them into the 10X8 bezel settings.
Glue your stones onto the filigree and then glue on any other ornate stampings you have selected. In this example, two small
stampings are glued to the top and bottom of the filigree.
4. Let the completed filigree centerpiece dry for 24
hours to be sure all the pieces are secure, then spray with a clear matte/satin lacquer if desired :)
Note: Before spraying, "mask" your stones with masking tape to protect
them from being sprayed.
5. Glue your centerpiece onto a bracelet or glue on a pin back if you are making a brooche.
FAST, EASY, GORGEOUS!

This is a brooche (pin) variation. In this example you can see how chain and beads are attached to the filigree edges. This could
have also been a necklace (instead of gluing on a "pin back", a neckchain could have been attached to the filigree

I hand polished this bracelet
and used E6000 glue to add on an oxidized brass butterfly that I buffed lightly with xfine (#000) steel wool.
Note: I also added a brass disk (glue cover) on the back of the bracelet to cover the glue and add extra stability to the
