Retired - Beauty's Garden Earrings

PROJECT E697
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
A detailed brass Vintaj filigree is accented by lovely lucite flowers and dazzling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal chatons in the Beauty's Garden Earring set. The subtle tones of yellow and light amethyst look soft and romantic against the antique brass color of the filigree.
Instructions
You will also need a toothpick or small piece of wire to use as an applicator for the glue. Don't forget to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Begin by taking your Vintaj Relief Block and lightly sanding the surface of your Vintaj natural brass delicate crest filigree stamping to expose some of the shiny brass beneath.
  2. Your stamping should have come in a little plastic bag. Remove the sticker and lay your filigree piece on top of the bag. This is going to prevent your E6000 from sticking to your work surface in the following steps.
  3. Please look at the photo at this time to get an idea of the flower placement.
  4. Place a dab of E6000 glue on a scrap piece of paper, wax paper, etc. - just something that you can toss when done and that keeps the glue from getting on your work surface. Pick up 1 lucite baby's breath matte yellow flower with your tweezers and dip the base of the flower in E6000. Now place that flower onto your filigree as seen in the photo. Place all 5 yellow flowers this same way.
  5. Using a scrap piece of wire or a toothpick, place a small dab of E6000 into the center of one of the yellow flowers. Into this glue, use your Magical Pick to place a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS pp24 crystal chaton in light amethyst in the center of the flower. Do this for all of your yellow flowers.
  6. Now look at the photo and place all your white flowers as seen in the photo. Place them the same way as the yellow flowers and also add the crystal chatons in the same manner. Let dry.
  7. Open the loop at the base of the earring hook and link it to the top openwork hole in your filigree. Close the loop.
