- String your pendant on a ribbon or chain for a feminine look or leather cording to make it more casual. Take care to choose something that fits easily through the bail.
- Be careful to orient all of the crystals in the same direction in each unit of the pendant when attaching them to the components.
- Use individual components to make matching earrings.
