Project Description

Use the techniques taught in the Garnet Starburst Earrings class to create a beautiful pair of dangling stone set earrings. For an extra challenge, think about how you could adapt the design to make it your own. The most obvious idea would be to change the stone to one that suits your preferred colours, but you could also change the texture of the silver, leave it shiny rather than dark, or perhaps place the stone towards the bottom of the disc instead of the middle.

Show us where you work, your tools and your work in progress, and don't forget to ask for help and feedback if you get a bit stuck - that's what I'm here for!

Remember to download the equipment list to help you, and watch the 'Colour Your Silver' class to learn how to give your silver a darker antiqued patina.

To join me in my challenge of designing and filming 52 pairs of earrings in 2017 look out for my other earrings classes and use #52earrings on Instagram to show off your creations!
