Retired - Witch Tassel Earrings

PROJECT E3102
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
Long black tassels hang from pewter bead caps mimicking a whimsical witch design in these fun Halloween earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will also need a paint brush for this project.
  1. Before you begin, watch the video on How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glaze.
  2. Using your paint brush, carefully make some dabs of black Vintaj patina onto your pewter bead cap. Try not to cover the whole bead cap, but instead have some silver showing through. See photo for assistance. Set aside to dry.
  3. Next, onto a silver plated eye pin slide on an olivine Czech fire polish bead followed by your patinated pewter bead cap. Make sure the bead is nestled inside the bead cap. Create simple wire loop with your round nose pliers and snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  4. Watch the video on How to Add a Jump Ring to Premade Tassels.
  5. Following what you learned in the video, use your chain nose pliers to add a silver plated jump ring to your black nylon cord tassel. Close the jump ring.
  6. Open the jump ring on your tassel and slide on the simple loop from the bottom of your Olivine bead. Close back up.
  7. Open a silver plated earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the simple loop at the top of your bead cap. Close back up.
  8. You're done!
