Under My Umbrella Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Mollie Valente
Follow the instructions that come with the BIGkick (or see our blog link below) to emboss the brass blank. Polish the high points with the reliefing block.
Apply the patina using a paint brush or felt application pad; allow to dry. Polish the high points with the reliefing block.
Connect an umbrella blank to a kidney wire by linking together four heavy jump rings.
Use the 4mm jump rings to attach a glass teardrop to each heavy jump ring link.
Use round-nose pliers to pinch the kidney wire hanging loop closed, and add a filigree bead.
Repeat with the second earrings.
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.
