Copper Autumn Earrings

PROJECT E3103
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
A copper woodland leaf pendant in beautiful shades of Autumn hangs from a row of copper plated jump rings in these pretty seasonal 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 paint brush for this project.
  1. Before you begin, watch the videos on How to Use the Vintaj Patinas, How to Use the Vintaj Metal File and How to Use the Vintaj Relief Block. You will be painting your leaf pendant with patinas and using a relief block & metal file to add some detail in an upcoming step.
  2. Using your paint brush, place a few dabs of turquoise Vintaj patina onto your leaf pendant. Before the patina fully dries, use the side of your Vintaj Relief block to raise the designs on your pendant, followed by your Vintaj file to add some markings throughout for an abstract look.
  3. Once the patina is dry, use your gold Krylon leafing pen to add some specks of gold color throughout your pendant. Refer to photo.
  4. Using your chain nose pliers, open a copper jump ring and slide it through the hole on your leaf pendant and close. Open another jump ring and add it to the first and close.
  5. Repeat adding 8 more copper jump rings, linking them to one another and close.
  6. Open a copper earring hook (how you would a jump ring and slide it onto the last jump ring and close.
