Retired - Ladies by the Sea

PROJECT E1007
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
A pair of enchanting ladies lounge by the sea under magnifying glass tiles in these vintage style earrings accented with Indian Sapphire Swarovski Crystal beads.
Instructions
  1. Begin by rough cutting around the edges of both copies of the image of two ladies sitting back to back that are on your Bathing Beauties Collage Sheet (see photo for image reference).
  2. Watch the instructional video: How to Make a Keepsake Photo Pendant. Follow the instructions in the video to affix your 14.5 mm square glass cabochon domed tiles onto your images using Diamond Glaze adhesive. Use a separate copy of the image for each dome to ensure that you don't cut off too much from the middle of the image. See the photo for placement details. Disregard the end of the video which shows you how to glue your pendant into a setting.
  3. Once your tiles have been glued to the images, allowed to dry, and trimmed, flip the tiles upside down and use a paint brush to apply a layer of Diamond Glaze to the back of the images to seal them. Allow to dry for about half an hour before moving on.
  4. Apply a small amount of E6000 glue to the flat side of a small silver plated glue on earring bail (the side with the little "R" on it) and press it onto the back of one of the glass tiles, making sure that the ring is centered along the top edge of the tile. Repeat with the second earring bail and the second glass tile. Allow the glue to dry to at least an hour before moving on.
  5. Place a 6 mm Indian Sapphire Round Swarovski crystal bead onto a 1", 22 gauge silver plated eye pin. Use a pair of wire looping pliers to create a simple wire loop after the bead, and a pair of flush cutters to trim the excess wire.
  6. Make sure that the two wire loops to either side of the crystal bead are perpendicular to each other. If necessary, gently twist them with a pair of chain nose pliers to ensure that they are. This will keep the earring hanging straight when it's all put together.
  7. Open one of the wire loops with a pair of chain nose pliers and hang the glass tile from it by the loop on the earring bail.
  8. Use the chain nose pliers to carefully open the loop on an antique silver plated earring hooks with teardrop detail. Hang the earring from the earring hook and close the loop.
  9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 with the second earring.
