Under My Umbrella Earrings Tutorial

As seen in the Rings & Things Summer Supplement 2013. Created by: Mollie Valente

Designer Tips

  • Follow the instructions that come with the BIGkick™ 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.
