Retired - Disco Queen Earrings

PROJECT E2013
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Dance the night away as your golden earrings glitter like a Disco Ball!
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all steps to make the second earring.
  1. You will notice that on the back side of the aluminum fabric, each tiny individual square has four little prongs. And each large fabric square piece is actually 12 x 13 of those tiny individual squares. So taking one square fabric piece, lay it down so that the prong side is up and the side with 12 dots is on the top.
  2. Count, starting at the left, to the 12th dot and using your pliers, open the very last prong that is on the upper right corner of the dot. Take one jump ring and place it in the opening, close the prong around the jump ring.
  3. Repeat this process with the second fabric. We will call this one #2, and your first #1.
  4. On #1, lay it on your worktable so it is in a diamond shape with the jump ring at top. Now count down the middle from where the jump ring is, to the fourth dot on the grid. Open the bottom prong. You will place the #2 jump ring inside the prong and close it.
  5. Now moving back to #1, carefully open the jump ring and attach the earring hook, close the jump ring.
