Retired - Juno Earrings

PROJECT E3093
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
With a fun and casual boho vibe, these mixed media earrings feature round wood beads, Vintaj patina in Marine Blue and a cute gold plated arrow embellishment.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will need a paint brush & some paper towels for this project.
  1. Watch the video: How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glaze. In this video you will learn how to mix colors and create opaque finishes or create washes.
  2. Begin by placing a wood bead onto a paper towel. Get your Vintaj patina and paint brush ready. Add a few dabs of Vintaj patina onto your paper towel, and carefully paint the bottom half of your wood bead. Apply as many coats as you need, waiting for each to dry in between. Set aside to fully dry.
  3. Next, using your copper Krylon leafing pen, carefully draw a line across the wood bead at the center point, where your blue patina ends. Also paint the border of the wood bead that is surrounding the blue patinated portion. See photo for reference.
  4. Using your hypo cement glue, apply a thin line of glue diagonally across the wood bead. Please see photo. Carefully place your gold plated arrow embellishment onto the glue. Dry in place.
  5. Next, using your chain nose pliers, open an antiqued brass jump ring. Slide it through the hole on the wood bead and close. Open another jump ring and attach it onto that first jump ring and close.
  6. Open your antiqued brass earring hook and slide it through that second jump ring and close.
  7. You're done!
