Hearts Afire Earrings
Designer: Kathy Mannix
Vintage inspired brass and Swarovski copper crystal make these earrings a treasure for every jewelry box.
- Use your chainnose pliers to bend the tip just above the small circle at the top of the Vintage pendant (PND-7008) over. Gently squeeze the tip down on the back with your chainnose pliers (See Photo).
Open a jump ring (FJR-5372) and link it through the loop of the pendant you just made. Close the jump ring.
Take a dab of glue (XTL-1053) and place it on the back of the Swarovski crystal heart (SWBB-3703). This cement does NOT dry instantly -- you have at least 5 minutes to make adjustments before the glue starts to set. For maximum strength bond, allow 24-72 hours for complete curing. Next, lay the heart on top of the front of the brass pendant. It will fit nicely in the bottom part of the brass pendant as shown in the picture (See Photo).
Next, take another small dab of glue with a toothpick and place it on the back of one of the brass daisys (BMB-4696). Lay the daisy on top of the Swarovski heart centering it over the hole.
Now take a dab of glue with the toothpick and place on the back of the Swarovski flatback (SWF-11611). Place it in the center of the brass daisy you just glued on the heart.
Open the loop of the earwire hook (FEA-6640). Link the jump ring from the finished earring component onto the loop. Close the loop.
Repeat the steps above to make the second earring. You're finished!
Please refer to photo for more detailed information about this project.
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.
