Hi dear friends, today I want to help u to make ear cuff… not simple..but it is very humble. Let’s see..
a few 8 x 4mm Swarovski navette rhinestones & settings
a few 11 x 3mm Swarovski navette rhinestones & settings
1 2 x 40mm curved gold tube
1 flat glue-on post
1 stabilizer clutch
a pair of flat nose pliers
a pair of wire cutters
Start by hammering the hollow gold tube flat. Use the flat nose pliers to flatten and even out the texture.
Pull the working surface off the edge of a table. Pierce a hole and push the earring post through the working surface. Squeeze a dollop of E6000 onto a disposable spoon.
Use a toothpick and apply a generous amount of glue onto the flat post. Glue on the flattened curved piece. Allow to dry for 10-15 minutes before applying more glue and attaching the shorter rhinestones to the post. Use the pliers and toothpick to help maneuver the rhinestones. Allow drying.
Add more glue along the curved piece and add the longer rhinestones, one piece at a time and in an alternating pattern.
Use the toothpick to add glue along the sides of the rhinestones each time for extra hold. Dry overnight.
Use wire cutters to trim away the excess metal. Check for any potentially loose pieces and add more glue.
Allow drying for at least another day before wearing.
And be sure to back it with a stabilizer clutch to help keep the ear cuff from drooping!
