Rose Shoe Clips
Designer: Megan Milliken
Lovely peach lucite roses and antiqued brass filigree will bring flair to any plain pair of shoes with these
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 a 34 mm opaque peach lucite rose cabochon. Center it over a 35 mm antiqued brass square filigree stamping 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 glue to the glue pad on a 22k gold plated clip on earring finding. Place the stamping face down and center the earring finding with the hinged edge of the earring just inside one edge of the filigree stamping. 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 a different colored or shaped filigree stamping and any color rose to give these shoe clips a different look.
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.
