Create Colorful Jewelry with Mirage Beads and Mermaid Scales

EURO Software Glitter, 5-Piece Set

The EURO TOOL® GlitterLine™ basic jewelry device established consists of 5 tools. The established has chain-nose pliers, flat-nose pliers, bent chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers, and semi-flush side cutters–and they are all saved in a helpful roll-up pouch. The relaxed 4.5-inch pliers have glittery PVC grips, precision floor recommendations, and box-joint building with double-leaf springs for consolation. This package is a Rings & Things’ “Staff Choice” and a “Best Seller”.

Mermaid scales are domed, the “front” convex aspect staying a powder-coated color and the “back” concave side remaining a reflective silvertone. 

Twist open the eye pin loop, then thread on a mermaid scale allure. Lastly, twist the eye pin loop shut. I utilized a solitary mermaid scale for each earring, displaying purple on the front and silver on the bottom. You can also layer two mermaid scales back again-to-again on the eye pin so that purple is noticeable from the two sides.  

String the beads on to the eye pin in this sample: metal fluted hogan (bicone) bead, Mirage bead, and metallic fluted hogan bead. 

Mirage beads have a substantial hole that is about 2-to-3mm in measurement, which tends to suit sloppily on a head pin. The metal fluted hogan beads nestle down into the bead holes and act as bead aligners, centering the Mirage bead snuggly on the head pin.

Complete the eye pin conclude with a wrapped loop. For the finished earring to hang in the accurate direction, the wrapped loop should really be perpendicular to the decreased loop attached to the mermaid scale.

Use semi-flush facet cutters to clip off the remaining eye-pin tail. For a thoroughly clean straight cut, deal with the flat side of the cutter’s jaw subsequent to the wrapped coil. Then use chain-nose pliers to flatten down the slice wire end.

Thread the leading loop of the beaded adornment onto the ear wire with the completed side going through outward. With ball-finish ear wires, you never commonly will need to twist open up the loop with just a tiny tension, the adornment will slide above the ball conclusion and relaxation securely in the ear wire loop.

Now that you have designed a person earring, repeat the ways to make the next earring. To add interest, I selected to flip the way of the bee in my 2nd earring.
