Retired - Turquoise Drops Earrings

PROJECT E3019
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
These pretty cabochon earrings dangle beautifully and add a great pop of turquoise color! Pair them with a pretty dress or a casual pair of jeans for a stylish look.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Use a pair of chain nose pliers to bend the top scallop on an antiqued silver plated oval bezel cup out until it sits flat, angling straight up. Repeat this step with a second antiqued silver plated bezel cup.
  2. Place a dab of E6000 glue on the back of a faux turquoise cabochon and press it into place in a bezel cup. Repeat this step again with a second bezel cup.
  3. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before continuing.
  4. Next, flip over your first bezel cup and place a dab of glue on the back. Take your second bezel cup, and glue it back to back to the first bezel cup. Make sure your flatten scallops from the first step line up. Set aside to dry.
  5. Slide a jump ring onto your kidney shaped wire earring.
  6. Open up a second jump ring and slide it through your first jump ring and also through the two scallops you bent up in the first step.
  7. Your earring is now ready.
