Retired - Adrift in Time Earrings

PROJECT E802
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
For fans of pop culture, these earrings are a great conversation-starting accessory. They feature a police box charm dangling from a clockwork button surrounded by blue and white beads.
Instructions
  1. These earrings combine a number of jewelry making techniques and result in a complicated looking design - however, if you go step by step, they are not too challenging to make and a lot of fun.
  2. The entire process of making these earrings is demonstrated in the video: How to Make the Adrift in Time Earrings
  3. In the video you will learn how to cut the shank off your button, how to adhere it to your beading foundation, bead embroider a bezel row as well as an edge, create a wrapped wire loop, use a paint pen, as well as other jewelry making skills.
  4. Have fun!
