Retired - Constantina Earrings

PROJECT E3024
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
These delicate earrings feature a pretty antiqued silver plated scroll bezel pendant and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal chatons in Jet Metallic Silver. They'll add a touch of sparkle to your look.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Before you begin, watch the video on How to use Crystal Clay. .
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, put on your gloves and mix up a pea sized amount of black Crystal Clay. Roll it into a round shape.
  3. Place this round ball on top of the slightly indented bezel setting on the earring finding. At this point, use your fingers to push the clay up around the bezel of the earring pendant and also press down on the clay to smooth it all around.
  4. Using the beeswax tipped toothpick that came with your Crystal Clay kit, pick up your Jet Metallic Silver chatons one by one and place them into the clay. Try and get them as close together as possible without overlapping. If you are unsure how to pick them up with a pick, please watch the video on How to Use the Magical Pick because it uses the same technique. I recommend starting at the center and working your way around. You should be able to add 50 chatons onto your Crystal Clay. See photo.
  5. Let cure for at least a half hour before going onto the next step.
  6. Next, with your chain nose pliers, open up the loop on your antiqued silver earring hook (like how you would a jump ring) and slide on the loop that�s at the top of your antiqued silver plated bezel pendant. Close the loop back up with your pliers.
  7. Let your earrings cure overnight and enjoy.
