Retired - Crystal Galaxy Earrings

Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
Adorn a pair of black vintage lucite pendants with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal rhinestone flatbacks in Metallic Light Gold and Black Diamond for a look that is glamorous and celestial.
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. With your chain nose pliers, open the loop on your gold plated earring hooks, how you would a jump ring.
  2. Slide it on the loop that�s at the top of your vintage lucite pendant and close.
  3. Watch the video on How To Use a Magical Pick.
  4. Following what you learned in the video, begin adding tiny dabs of HypoCement glue onto your vintage lucite pendant. Use your Magical Pick tool to pick up and place 13 of the larger Black Diamond flatbacks in a scattered fashion onto your pendant. I started at the bottom and added them about half way up. Next, I added the 43 Metallic Light Gold flatbacks in between. Please refer to the photo often to get the same exact placement. (As you are adding on your flatbacks, remember that you can add as many or as few as you like.)
  5. Once all your flat backs are on, set aside a few minutes to dry.
  6. You�re done!
