What did you use for the halos?

Lew, the halos are sold as halos at the craft stores in the jewelry section.  They are 23mm halos.  My first batch years ago I used a cap with them and glued the two together.  I can no longer find them and I am just going to do this batch this way. and glue them on

how did you turn and notch them.. the process that is...

I turn them starting with a 1 3/4" X 6" blank.  Turn it round and then turn as many wings of of it as I can get.  I turn a dish in the end and then use a parting tool to cut a groove and leave a stub and turn the concave part of the wing as I am doing so.  Mine ar small so I can't use a spindle sander so I use a scroll saw and a file for the wing notches.

 

Rick Hutcheson's video was the inspiration.  Click on "Free Woodturning Videos".  About the 22nd video down the page.
