Retired - Argh Matey! Pirate Cuff Link Set

PROJECT C648
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Make this dashing pair of pirate cuff links using a variety of mixed media techniques. The resulting design is a polished piece of jewelry that is stylish and sophisticated, yet still has a fun edge to it.
Instructions
Please note, you will also need a paint brush, measured mixing cup, and stir stick for this project. Also, remember to double the directions below to make your matched pair of cuff links.
  1. Start by painting the interior of your cuff link black. Paint one coat and then let it dry fully. Paint a second coat and let it dry fully as well.
  2. Snip the loop off one of your pirate charms using flush cutters.
  3. Place a small dab of E6000 on the backside of the pirate charm, flip over, and center inside of your painted bezel. Let dry for several hours.
  4. Mix up an ounce of resin and carefully pour some into your cuff link bezel - just enough to cover the pirate and create a slight dome. Let cure for 3 full days.
  5. Enjoy!
