Clover Earrings

PROJECT E2253
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Get in the spring spirit with these cute clover stamped earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will also need a paper towel for this project.
  1. Before beginning this project please watch out video showcasing ImpressArt Stamping Blanks and Metal Punches. In this video you will see the basic technique for punching your stampings.
  2. Line up the shamrock punch on the stamping. Using the hammer, punch the metal in one motion.
  3. Next to add the Patina, place a dab of paint on to a scrap piece of paper. You don't need much. Take your paint brush and add a little bit into the stamping impression. Dab the paint, then quickly wipe away with the paper towel.
  4. Cut off about 4 inches of wire. Using your round nose pliers make a large (4mm approx.) loop to accommodate the hole of the stamping. Before completing the wrapped wire loop attach the stamping. Cut the excess wrap wire.
  5. String on one bead, make another wrapped wire loop, but for this loop it only needs to accommodate the loop of the earring post before completing the wrap. Also this loop should be perpendicular to the one below it. Please see project photo for reference. Finish by adding an earring back.
