Retired - Deco Delight Earrings

PROJECT E3026
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Make these striking earrings by combining Vintaj findings, Vintaj patina and a silver Krylon leafing pen. The style combines bold geometric shapes to make an Art Deco-inspired accessory.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. For this project, you will need a paint brush and a clean surface area to work on.
  1. Begin by laying out your Vintaj pieces on your work space, with the raised sides up.
  2. Next, watch the video on How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glaze.
  3. Following what you learned, paint the front sides of your Vintaj stampings using your paint brush and black Vintaj patina.
  4. Wait a few minutes for the pieces to completely dry.
  5. Next, watch the video on How to Embellish Metal Stampings with Krylon Leafing Pens.
  6. Following what you learned in the video, and while looking at the photos often, carefully outline and color the inner triangle part of your Vintaj tiled metalwork connector bead and also the circle designs on your Vintaj natural stamping pendant. See photo for assistance.
  7. Wait a few minutes for the stampings to dry.
  8. Now go back with your patina and color in the small center circle on your connector bead. Also color in the 2 small circles of your stamping pendant. See photo.
  9. Next, using your chain nose pliers, open up the loop at the bottom of an antiqued silver earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide on one of the loops from your Vintaj connector beads and close.
  10. Next, open up a jump ring and slide on the bottom loop from that same connector bead and also the top loop from your Vintaj stamping pendant and close.
  11. You're done!
