Retired - Flying Bees Earrings

PROJECT E679
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Stamped bees fly happily around an antique copper plated flat tag in these charming earrings. Red accents add extra drama and elegance to this design.
Instructions
Remember to double these instructions to make your matched set of earrings.
  1. Start by taking your bee rubber stamp and stamping bees in a random pattern on Nunn Design antique copper plated flat circle toggle tag, Use the StazOn ink in black for this process and make several "test" stampings on a scrap piece of paper first to see how much pressure you need to apply when stamping.
  2. After you have finished with your bee stamp, add some more stamping details with your mini branch rubber stamp. See photo. Let dry for 5 minutes before going onto the next step.
  3. Take your Nunn Design antique copper plated 13mm round bezel cup and bend back one of the edge loops so that you will be able to hook a jump ring to it. You can do this by grabbing the loop with your chain nose pliers and bending back so that it lays flat instead of upright.
  4. Take a small dab of E6000 and place it on the flat backside of your garnet red 13mm round glass cabochon. Place this into the bezel cup from the above step. Press down and let dry.
  5. Open a 4mm antique copper jump ring and link it to the bent back loop on the bezel cup with cabochon and the loop on one side of the Nunn Design circle tag that you stamped earlier. Close the jump ring.
  6. Cut the head off of one of your antique copper plated head pin right near the head. Create a simple wire loop on one end. Place onto the wire 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone in light siam satin red. Create a simple wire loop after the bead but make sure the loop is facing the opposite direction as the one on the other end (see photo).
  7. Open one of the simple loops from the segment in the last step and connect this to the loop on the round flat tag. Close the loop. Open the loop on the other side and attach your earring hook to it. Close the loop back up.
  8. All done! Enjoy!
