Retired - Glam Gal Earrings

PROJECT E686
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Sparkling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal chatons add a glamorous touch to this earring design and the fun color scheme of pink and purple is bright and festive. Wear these for a special night out or just whenever you want to feel pretty.
Instructions
Don't forget to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings!
  1. Begin by cutting a length of chain which is 11 links long (count the center chain links, not the circle charms).
  2. Next, please watch the tutorial video: How to Use Circle Charm Chain and Crystal Clay to Make Earrings.
  3. Use the information from the video to mix up your Crystal Clay, put the little "balls" into the circle charms, and add the chatons. For this project, I just randomly filled some of the circle charms with either pink or purple clay and chatons and left some of them blank. You can fill as many as you like and in whatever order you like.
  4. Let your finished piece cure overnight. It helps to suspend it from a fixed object above your table so that the clay does not stick to itself or other parts of the chain.
  5. Open the small loop at the base of your earring hook and link it to the top chain link of the dangle you created. Close this loop back up.
  6. All done! Enjoy your pretty new earrings.
