I have never attempted a project like this one and am curious if you could explain what the attaching to the find means? I'm not a jewelry maker and don't quite follow that part. Is it the original metal cage type thing before u start wrapping the wire around it? Or am I way off? I really like how you've wrapped everything again in string, it gives the illusion that it's being held in string. Very cool looking.
