Instructions
Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for up-to-date information.
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will also need a toothpick or scrap of wire for this project.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glazes. From what you learned in the video, pour out a little bit of the patina on to a piece of paper or wax paper. Use your paint brush to paint the front of the filigree piece. You may need to dab the paint into the small portions to give it a good coat. Allow to dry before flipping it over to paint the back side. Set aside to dry.
  2. Once dry, place a dab of E6000 on to the center of the piece of filigree and place an Austrian crystal flatback into the center. (See photo for reference)
  3. Take one eye pin, open the loop, same as you would a jump ring. Attach one tassel and close the loop. String on one pom to the eye pin, then string on one gold filigree bead. Make a simple wire loop. Repeat this step twice to complete three tassel dangles.
  4. Open the loop of the eye pins and attach them to the painted filigree piece. One in the center, one in the center on the left and one in the center on the right. (See photo for reference)
  5. Open the loop of the earring hook and attach it to the top of the filigree piece and you're all done!
