Retired - Domino Earrings

PROJECT E634
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
How fun! Funky, quirky, cute, retro, nostalgic - oh so many words to describe these great earrings! You can't help but smile when looking at them.
Instructions
  1. These earrings are a lot of fun to make! Remember to double all these directions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  2. Begin by cutting a 3" length of 18 gauge silver colored craft wire. Follow the video How to Make a Wire Bail for Domino and Scrabble Tile Jewelry to make your bail using the cut length of wire.
  3. Once you have your bail made, attach it to the backside of the domino using E6000 glue as seen in the video.
  4. Let dry.
  5. Next, using your chain nose pliers, gently open the loop of wire at the front of your domino. Just separate it enough from the main body so that you can slip the loop at the base of the silver plated stud earring ball post onto the wire. Do this and pull the earring post along the wire arch until it rests in the middle of your bail top. Make sure it is facing the right direction to go into your ear.
  6. Again using your chain nose pliers, close that front loop back up so it looks like it did to start with.
  7. All done!
