Retired - An Elegant Reminder Earrings

PROJECT E705
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
These very pretty earrings were made to show support for breast cancer awareness and honor all those who have been affected by it. They have a distinct 'vintage' feel to them and combine Vintaj natural brass components with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS light rose crystals.
Instructions
Don't forget to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Please begin by using your Vintaj Relief Block and gently sanding your Vintaj filigree 2-hole connector and Vintaj awareness ribbon to expose some of the shiny brass below.
  2. Now please look at the photo and place the 5 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS flatback rhinestones in light rose onto your two Vintaj pieces from above. Just place a small dab of E6000 glue wherever you want a rhinestone and then use the magical pick to place the rhinestone into the glue. Let dry.
  3. Place onto a brass eye pin 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 4mm bicone in light rose. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and trim excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Open one of the loops from the segment above and link it to one of the loops on your 2-hole connector ring. Close the loop back up. Open the other loop and connect it to the top loop on your awareness ribbon. Close this loop.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook and connect it to the top loop of your 2-hole connector. Close this loop.
  6. All done!
