Dancing Sun Earrings

PROJECT E2150
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Perfectly Bohemian, these dancing sun pendants shimmer with the shine of their natural brass coming through a deco motif embossing.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Use the Vintaj BIGkick with Etching and Embossing Dies.
  2. From what you learned in the video, place the sun stamping into the die. Choose the section of the die that you would like to emboss on the sun. I used a section just above center of the die (see photo for reference).
  3. Run it through the machine. Remove the stamping from the die.
  4. Use the Vintaj Relief Block on both sides of the stamping to bring out the shiny brass.
  5. Take on eye pin and string on one sea glass nugget bead. Make a simple wire loop, that faces the opposite way of the other loop.
  6. Open the one side of the eye pin, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the sun stamping. Close the loop.
  7. Move to the other side of the eye pin. Open the loop and attach one earring hook. Close the loop and you're all done!
