Retired - Titanic Earrings

PROJECT E642
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Feel like you are stepping back into a more romantic time when wearing these ornate brass, pearl, and crystal earrings. Using the Vintaj Big Kick machine, we have embossed the georgian drop stamping blanks
Instructions
Remember to double all these directions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Begin making these earrings by using the DecoEmboss Moonlit Night die and the Vintaj Big Kick machine to emboss the swirl pattern onto the Vintaj georgian drop stamping. Please watch the video here on how to use the Big Kick machine.
  2. Take your Vintaj relief block and gently sand your stamping to pull out the details of the embossed pattern on your blank. You can watch the video How to Use the Vintaj Relief Block to see how make your embossed area pop. Also use the Vintaj relief block on the raised details of your Vintaj brass fleur de lis drop charm.
  3. Now take 1 Vintaj brass eye pin and open the eye the same way you would open a jump ring. Onto this open loop, place both the georgian drop stamping and the fleur de lis charm. Close the loop back up.
  4. Onto the wire, place 1 Swarovski crystal 6mm rondelle in jet black, 1 antique brass small corrugated bead cap, 1 Swarovski 8mm faux pearl in petrol crystal pearl, and another small corrugated bead cap. Create a simple wire loop right after the last bead cap. Cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  5. Open the simple loop you just made in the previous step and connect it to the loop at the base of your antique brass leverback with shell earrings. Close the loop back up.
  6. Check to make sure that your drop and charm face forward when you hold your earring in front of you. If they do not, then gently twist around the loop which is holding the drop/charm to the rest of the earring until the dangling items are facing forward.
  7. Enjoy your pretty new earrings!
