Fern Dangle Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
Follow the manufacturer's instructions to emboss the brass blanks.
Use the reliefing block to highlight the high points.
Punch 2 holes in each blank with a metal hole punch.
Create 4 messy wire-wrapped briolettes and attach to the embossed blank with jump rings.
Not all gemstone teardrop briolette beads will fit on 20-gauge wire. Find ones that will, or use 22-gauge wire instead.
Wire wrap the round beads with bead caps directly to the top hole.
The bead caps are flexible and will stretch easily for a correct fit on the 8mm round beads.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
