Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Lovely ivory and black flower cameos are the centerpiece for these elegant earrings. They have a distinct antique, almost regal feel to them but their simple color palette makes it so they can be worn with
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all these directions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  2. Using a toothpick or piece of wire as an applicator, spread a layer of E6000 on the backside of one of your black and ivory flower cameos. Place the cameo, glue side down, into the etched floral oval bezel. Press into place and let dry.
  3. Cut a 2 inch piece of 22 gauge wire. Create a simple wire loop on one end. Thread onto the wire 1 Czech glass druk round bead. Create another simple wire loop right after the bead. Cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Open the simple wire loop on one end, the same way you would open a jump ring. Attach it to the loop at the top of your bezel setting. Close the simple wire loop.
  5. Take one of your Niobium earring hooks and open the loop at the bottom. Attach this to the simple wire loop opposite the one you just attached to your bezel. Close the loop back up.
  6. Enjoy your new earrings!
