Peppermint Candy Earrings

PROJECT E2301
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Bold and sparkly, these peppermint earrings are a fun way to add a little sugar to your style.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by using the GS Hypo Cement and the Pickup Artist tool to place the flatbacks on to the connector link. Please watch our video: How to Use the Crystal FX Pickup Artist Crystal Positioning Tool. Place them in three rows, as seen in the photo, or choose your own placement.
  2. Allow this to dry fully. We recommend at least an hour before working with it, but 24 to allow for maximum bond.
  3. Take one head pin and string on one flower bead, (please see photo for orientation) make a simple wire loop. Make sure your loop is large enough to accommodate the connector. Open the loop, same as you would a jump ring and attach it to the hole of the connector.
  4. Next take one eye pin and use the loop to attach the earring hook by opening the loop and closing it. String on one flower bead and make a simple wire loop. Attach this simple loop onto the top hole of the connector. Close the loop and you're all done.
