Retired - Ancient Princess Earrings

PROJECT E2072
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
These Vintaj Arte Metal pendants provide the beautiful stamping centerpiece of this design. With a little patina they are perfectly 'aged' to inspire the antiqued, old world look.
Instructions
You will also need a paint brush and paper towel for this project. By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Please watch our video, How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glaze. From what you saw in this video, dab the silver patina onto the front of the pendant. Quickly, dab the front with a paper towel to get rid of the excess.
  2. Let dry for a few minutes.
  3. Use the Vintaj Relief block to lightly buff the top of the stamping.
  4. Add a thin coat of glaze to the top of the stamping. Let dry.
  5. Open one jump ring and attach it to one earring hook. Close the jump ring.
  6. Open one more jump ring, and attach it to the other jump ring and to the loop on the pendant. Close the jump ring.
  7. All done!
