Urban Chic Earrings

PROJECT E818
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Chic and modern, these triangle earrings have an edgy industrial look to them. The blue center is concrete which has a nice matte finish that goes well with the Nunn Design antique copper findings.
Instructions
Please note you will also need a disposable mixing cup, some way of measuring tablespoons and teaspoons, tap water, and something such as a popsicle stick to stir your concrete.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Add Color Pigments to Concrete for Jewelry.
  2. In the video you will learn how to mix your concrete and add the pigment. Based upon what you learned in the video, mix up a batch of blue concrete and fill your triangle bezels. Let cure before going onto the next step.
  3. Open the loop at the base of the earring hook (the same way you would open a jump ring) and attach it to the loop on the triangle bezel. Close the loop back up. Repeat this step for your second earring.
  4. All done, enjoy!
