Sacred Heart Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Mollie Valente
- Punch holes centered in the top and bottom of the brass heart blanks.
- Following the instructions that come with the BIGkick, emboss the cutout heart blanks to closely match. Patina and polish.
- The 26-gauge brass used for making the fairy-door blanks is lightweight, making them perfect for earrings and embossing in the BIGkick.
- Attach an ear wire to the top hole and add a fluted bead to the ear wire.
- Use head pins to wire wrap the 16 crystal bicone beads. Add eight crystal dangles to each 8mm jump ring and attach each to the bottom hole on the brass heart blanks.
