PROJECT E2313
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Add a punch of color to this funky design of a TierraCast rivoli setting and spikes pendants.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will also need a lighter for this project. We also recommend using museum putty to help keep your earrings level as they cure.
  1. To see an example of a similar project, please watch our video: How to Make a Pair of Resin Earrings featuring Nunn Design Earring Bezels. In this video you will learn how to mix and colorize your resin to make a pair of earrings. You will also see some helpful tips for keeping your earrings level as they cure.
  2. From what you learned in the video, set up your earrings on a box or something to keep them level like museum putty. Mix your resin and separate the amount you want to color into a cup; about 1 tsp. Slowly add a drop of green and a drop of yellow. If you want a lighter color, you can add a little bit of the white. Slowly add color to achieve the lime green color.
  3. Using a stick, add the resin to the bezels. Allow to cure for at least 24 hours.
  4. The chain used in this project has open links that open like jump rings. Open one link and attach it to one of the outside loops of the setting. Close the link. Then move down the chain and open the third link in the chain and attach it to one spike pendant. Close the link.
  5. Move to the center loop and repeat the above step, this time extending the chain to five links. Then move to the third loop and repeat with three links of chain.
  6. Open the loop of the earring finding, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the top loop of the setting.
