Retired - Christmas Waltz Earrings in Green

PROJECT E2051
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
These are the perfect earrings to wear so that you can dance all night long at your Holiday parties this season. They also make wonderful gifts for your loved ones.
Instructions
Before beginning this project please watch our video: How to use Ice Resin.
  1. You will need to make a level surface for your earrings. Because the posts are already on the back you can use something around your house, like a shoebox. Poke the earrings down through the box and level the surface.
  2. From what you learned in the video, mix equal parts A and B; 1/2 oz of each. Mix with a popsicle stick gently until all striations are gone. Scrap the sides of the cup so that you don't whip and create air bubbles.
  3. Add one drop at a time of the resin dye. You do not want to add too much. If you add too much, you will change the chemical reaction of the resin and it will not set up properly. Once it has been properly mixed you are ready to add it to your bezel.
  4. Carefully place one drop at a time into the bezel. The sides of the bezel with hold the resin with surface tension. Fill the bezel to the top without going over. You do not want your resin to spill.
  5. Fill both bezels. Let these dry for at least 24 hours before proceeding. Once they have completely dried you can remove them from the box.
  6. String one pearl on to a head pin and make a simple wire loop.
  7. Open this loop, same as you would a jump ring and attach it to the loop on the bottom on the earring. Close the loop.
  8. All done!
