Hi, this is Kat with things and some beautiful swarovski crystals so it looks good from all angles and i just added a little bit of chain and an antique silver earring hook some nice and easy the reason I wanted to do this is that these stampings actually don't look so great on the other side so I wanted to find a way to sort of put them together while adding a little bit of something in between it just begs for a little crystal and inside there don't you think but what's neat about these is they actually have a little hole at the top so they are considered pendants so what I'm going to do is I'm going to glue them back-to-back and then use them so it looks good from all angles so to begin we're just going to take a little bit of our six thousand and I have just a little scrap of wire here and I'm just gonna put a little bit of glue on my pad there and set that aside there we go and I'm just going to take a little dab of glue and place it into the center of my little snowflake right there and now all I'm gonna do is just with my fingers these are big enough so I'm just gonna place it right on top there and just sort of press it into place and right in the center there so that's one and just go ahead and do the second one place a little dab of glue in there yeah and go ahead and place another Sourav ski crystal and I just loved this color this is the sapphire and it just looks really beautiful as a snowflake so I'm going to let those dry for just a minute I'm going to set this aside and now I'm just gonna go over kind of what I've been using here so I have Swarovski crystals and these are sapphire and then I have four millimeter 21 gauge open jump rings in silver I have the Gen Y chain and this is really great to use especially with earrings because we sell it by the inch so you can get exactly the amount you need which like I said is really perfect for earrings when you really only need maybe two inches so you don't have an extra ten inches left over from purchasing a foot of chain which I always like and then like I said I have these antique silver just regular ear wire hooks so to complete the project I use just a little piece of wire just as scrap you can also use a toothpick and then I have a pair of cutters and two pairs of chain nose pliers so I'm gonna use my cutters to get the length of chain that I want and because this chain is so delicate it can be difficult to measure so what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna count out 15 links so let me just count that out real quick so I have 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 and I'm going to cut that sixteenth link count I can set my chain aside and while I'm waiting for my snowflakes to dry and be built I'm going to take my earring hook here and take one of my pairs of chain nose pliers and just gently open up and now I can slip my chain on there we go and just close that up nice and tight there we go so that's all set for when I'm ready to attach my charm and what I'm going to do is I'm going to wait for these to dry just a little bit before I attach them back-to-back so I'll be back in just a moment to show you how to do that okay so I'm just going to continue to put a little bit 6000 onto my work surface here and I like to use a little post-it note or piece of paper it just keeps it nice and clean so all I'm gonna do is I want to make sure that I line up those two holes here so just flip over your piece and add a little bit of glue to the center this is your main point of contact and then you can kind of spread it out to those ends just a little bit just to give it something to hold on to so you want to make sure this day is nice and secure there you go and now my holes up here so all I'm gonna do is I'm going to place that stamping right on top and then just take a second just to really line it up and make sure that you're not getting sort of double vision on a lot of that and then just very carefully just sort of press it together with your fingers so now I have it on one side and very carefully I'll flip it over on the other side so now I'm going to let that dry for a little while and then I'm going to come back and take care of any little pieces of glue that get left over and make sure that we're all nice and lined up so I'll be right back to show you the next step okay so the last step is to just assemble my earring so what I'm going to do is take one of my four millimeter jump rings and both pairs of my pliers and just gently twist to get that open I'm going to slip on my chain and now all that's left is I need to slip on my double-sided pendant through those loops and now all I need to do is close that jump ring I am all done now I do want to point out the great thing is is that in case your glue comes undone from your stamping pieces being placed back-to-back they'll still be attached by that jump ring so you definitely won't lose anything so if that happens you can always just go back and add a little dab more of glue but hopefully that stays nice and strong and success and is a really strong bond of glue so there you are that is how to make the twirling snowflake earrings I hope you enjoyed this video you can find all of these supplies and more at you
