Retired - Peach Puff Earrings

PROJECT E7049
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
Modern TierraCast bezels spotlight organic dollops of Artist's Concrete lightly pigmented to create a peachy hue.
Instructions
In addition to the materials listed above, you will also need some toothpicks, paper towels and tap water to complete this project. For this project, you will make both earrings at the same time.
  1. First, make a support structure to keep your earring bezels level as you work with them. Take a jewelry box (a shoe box would also work) and poke two holes through the top. Place the posts of your earring bezels through the holes. Set up your two charm bezels on a flat surface nearby.
  2. Next, please watch our video on how to add color pigments to concrete for jewelry. Based on the instructions in the video, mix your concrete in a mixing cup and use a toothpick to add a small amount of terracotta pigment into the concrete. Stir until the color is blended, and add more pigment until the color reaches your desired saturation.
  3. Use a toothpick to drip the concrete into one earring bezel and then the other. Repeat this process with the two charm bezels.
  4. Let the concrete cure overnight.
  5. Using pliers, open a silver jump ring. Slide it through the loop at the bottom of one earring bezel, and the loop at the top of one charm bezel. Close the jump ring. Repeat this step for the second earring.
  6. Place earring backs onto your earring posts. Enjoy!
