Retired - Unlock My Love Earrings

Retired - Unlock My Love Earrings
Slightly Steampunk, a bit industrial, and a little urban; these earrings are full of personality! The gears have been hammered to add just that extra 'something special' to the design and the heart locket adds a feminine touch.

Instructions

Don't forget to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Start by adding some texture to your cog wheels using the ball part of a chasing hammer and a bench block. You can see how to do this in the video tutorial: How to Create a Hammered Texture on Metal Blanks.
  2. Using the smaller size hole punch of the Eurotool two hole metal punch, punch a hole along the side of your 26mm open gear cog wheel.
  3. Open an oval jump ring and link it through the hole you punched in the previous step as well as the top "handle" of your black finish pewter heart lock keyhole charm and one of the open-work gear sections of your 19mm cog wheel. Close your jump ring.
  4. Open another jump ring and link it to the an openwork area of the med cog you just attached, this time across from the area the charm is attached to, as well as the loop at the base of your stud earring post. Close the jump ring.
  5. Attach an earring back to your stud post.
  6. Enjoy!
