Basically you thread the beads on, and twist the wire to secure. Make sure you have plenty of wire to include the twisting, so it's on as few separate pieces as possible.
It also looks as though every now and then they looped and twisted larger sections so they don't come apart and have a better structure, if that makes sense.

I'm also adding a pic of my tiara. I'd show you the original inspiration but I don't have a link back to the original picture and have no idea where I found it, I just have the picture itself.
Thank you so much for the info!!!! what size wire do I need and are the holes on the beads different sizes? I really have no clue lol.
Thanks again
