- Mark all six of your triangle blanks with a permanent marker dot in one of the points and straight down on the opposite side.
- Use the hole-punching side of the riveting tool to make a hole in the triangle blanks where you placed your dots.
- Use the riveting tool to rivet the triangles together with the brass rivets.
- Antique the brass pieces with Novacan black.
- Using the sanding sponge remove some of the patina from the brass riveted pieces.
- At the bottom of each earring, attach a Swarovski crystal spike pendant with an antique brass jump ring.
- At the top of each brass piece add two jump rings and a niobium earring wire.
