Renewal Earrings

PROJECT E891
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
These earrings feel both uplifting and fresh with their color palette of crisp green, white, gold, and bronze. In addition to their earthly color palette, they also have a very zen-like quality with their floral bead caps, wood beads, and pretty focal pendant with radiating arcs.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Take your Vintaj relief block and gently sand the Vintaj pendant to expose some of the brighter brass below. Use a hole punch plier to punch a hole in the bottom tip of the pendant. Refer to the photo for placement.
  2. Next add a paint splatter effect to your Vintaj pendant. You will do this by placing a small amount of each color of patina on a scrap piece of paper or plastic baggie. Lightly dip your paint brush into one color and then dab it randomly on the pendant. I chose to only paint below the arcing detail but you can paint wherever you desire. You do not need to let the first color dry before going onto the second. Next dab the second color on your pendant. You want it to be a bit messy and you also want to see some of the brass below. Let dry for 20 minutes once you are done.
  3. Open a jump ring and link it through the hole you previously punched as well as your Zola Elements charm. Close the jump ring.
  4. Onto an eye pin place a bead cap facing up, a wood bead, and a bead cap facing down. Create a simple wire loop after the last bead cap.
  5. Open one of the loops from the previous step and link it to the Vintaj pendant. Close the loop. Open the other loop and link it to the earring hook. Close the loop.
  6. Enjoy!
