Pink Patina Jellyfish Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Mollie Valente
- Follow manufacturer's instructions to emboss the brass blanks.
- Use the bending pliers to gently curve the brass blanks.
- Dab the "patina" on with a felt-pad applicator and allow to dry. Use the reliefing block to polish the high points.
- Cut the chain into four pieces, two that are 3" and two that are 2.5". Add a wire-wrapped bicone bead to each chain end.
- Use a small jump ring to connect a brass tag, and a long and a short chain dangle together. Repeat with the other second set of components.
- Use a large jump ring to connect the tag dangle to the ear clip, and repeat.
- Add a fluted hogan bead to each ear clip; leave free floating or use glue to secure in place.
