Modern Mosaic Copper Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Mollie Valente
Follow the manufacturers directions for embossing a pair of Vintaj copper blanks, or view one of our DecoEmbossing blog post tutorials for instructions (links below).
Use patina to oxidize the embossed copper blanks. Then polish the high points with first a sanding sponge, and then a polishing pad.
Hang the embossed blank charm on the loop of the eye pin. (See Jewelry Basics 101 below).
String the beads on in this order: yellow-plated faceted bead, round crystal glass bead, copper bead cap, silver mist jasper bead, copper fluted bead, and yellow-plated faceted bead.
Finish the end of the eye pin with a wrapped loop.
Connect the wrapped loop to the ear wire hanging loop.
Repeat steps 1-4 to make the second earring.

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.
