Nucifera Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Jaci Boston
- To form the metal flower, add the filigree bead, three bead caps (from smallest to largest diameter) and a disk bead to a ball-end head pin.
- Finish by bending the head pin 90 degrees and make a spiral with the remaining wire. You want to create a nub big enough so it can be glued into the bezel cup.
- Cut two small slits in the cardboard to hold up the clip backs level.
- Mix epoxy according to manufacturer's directions, and add to each bezel cup.
- Place the metal flower component into the bezel cup and allow the adhesive to sure.
- Colorize the wood charms with alcohol inks.
