Victoria - Etched Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Summer Melaas
Etch earrings (See etching tutorial below).
Place cushion in cushion setting and fold over tabs using nylon-jaw pliers or a burnisher.
Attach French hooks to top of cushion. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
Attach etched copper drop to bottom of cushion.
Optional: You can run the copper drop through the Sizzix Jewelry Studio or BigKICK if you anneal (heat soften) the metal first. Or you can use #88-102-36-0 Vintaj drop in the Sizzix machines with brass findings -- Great if you do not want to etch or anneal, but want a similar look.
