Retired - Andalucia Earrings

PROJECT E3043
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
With an ornate stamping embellished with Turquoise Czech crystal rhinestone cup chain and enhanced using Vintaj patina in Verdigris Teal, these earrings will add a fresh pop of color to your look.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will need a clean work space and a paint brush for this project.
  1. Using your paint brush, begin dabbing the surface of your antiqued silver plated stamping with your two Vintaj patinas. Wash your brush in between uses and colors. Try not to blend the two colors together, instead cover the stamping with the two colors in separate areas. See photo.
  2. While your stamping is still wet, use the side of your Vintaj relief block to sand the raised areas of your stamping. Set aside to dry.
  3. Cut a 1 inch length of your Turquoise Czech glass cup chain with your flush cutters.
  4. Once your stamping is dry, add a thin line of Hypo Cement glue in a �V� design in the center of your stamping. See photo for glue placement assistance.
  5. Carefully pick up your cup chain length and place it down onto the glue line. Please see photo to get exact placement. Set aside to dry for a few minutes.
  6. Once dry, use your chain nose pliers to open your antiqued silver plated earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide on the loop at the top of your stamping. Close the hook back up.
  7. You're done!
