NOTE: This project includes one or more items that are no longer available, despite our best efforts. We have kept this project on the site for you to use as a template or inspiration for your own creations.
Remember to double these instructions to make your matched pair of shoe clips.
- Use a toothpick or scrap piece of wire to spread a thin, even coat of E6000 glue onto the back of an 18 x 25 mm pink rose quartz faceted oval cabochon. Center it in a 35 x 42 mm antiqued brass oval cabochon setting and press firmly into place. Allow the glue to dry for at least an hour before moving on.
Use a toothpick or scrap piece of wire to apply a thin, even coat of E6000 to the glue pad on a 22k gold plated clip on earring finding. Place your setting face down and center the earring finding with the hinged edge of the earring just inside one of the long edges of the filigree setting. Press firmly, allow to dry for at least an hour before moving on.
Use a round shape between 3/4" and 1" (such as a nickel) to trace two circles onto a piece of chamois ultra suede with a ball point pen. Cut out the two circles.
Use your finger to apply a thin, even coat of The Ultimate glue to one of the ultra suede circles. Open the clip on earring hinge and place the ultra suede circle over one side of the back of the earring finding, leaving a bit of the circle around the edges of the earring finding.
Use your finger to apply a thin, even coat of The Ultimate glue to the one side of the other ultra suede circle. Line it up with the other circle and press, glue sides together, to sandwich the back of the earring finding between the to circles.
Allow all of the glue to dry for at least 24 hours before wearing.
Use any 18 x 25 mm cabochon in this setting to change the look of these shoe clips.
When substituting in items, pay attention to sizes and styles to make sure all your pieces will fit together.
Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
