Retired - The Melrose Earrings

PROJECT E701
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Large and impressive gold swirls dominate these contemporary earrings. Accenting the swirls are radiant amethyst colored glass cabochons set into delicate bezel cups. These versatile earrings would be great for both a day at the office and a dinner date afterward.
Instructions
Don't forget to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings!
  1. Take one of your Nunn Design antique gold plated bezel cups, and using your chain nose pliers, carefully bend back one of the scallops 90 degrees.
  2. Place a small dab of E6000 glue into the center of your bezel cup and then place one of your amethyst 13mm round glass cabochon into the glue. Let dry.
  3. Open a 4mm jump ring and connect it to the loop at the base of the larger part of your Nunn Design gold plated swirl connector as well as the bent back loop of your bezel cup/cabochon. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open the small loop at the base of your earring hook and connect it to the loop at the top of your spiral. Close the loop back up.
  5. All done! Enjoy your new earring set.
