Affix Jewelry Findings

You shouldn't rely solely on the wires to hold GEMMA in place. Secure it in four spots with clear thread-- we're using purple so you can see it better.

Thread a needle and pass it through a hole on GEMMA.
Tie the thread in a knot around the NeoPixel ring, aligning the thread between pixels. Do this in four spots around GEMMA to secure it in the center of the earring.
You can either glue a pendant hanger on the back with E6000 adhesive (hot glue is INSUFFICIENT), or attach an ear wire with a jump ring and two pairs of pliers.
Our tiny lipoly battery can be affixed to the back with double-stick tape. Secure it further with more clear thread if desired.
