This design is from our inspirations archive. As this design was created some time ago we sadly no longer stock all the products to create our design, but can still be useful for inspiration.

Learn how to make these glittery Mermaid Mirage earrings, as see in the Shine Online magazine.

Please Note:
We used a rivet machine (W325). If you need one of these you will have to add it to your basket.

Step 1

Firstly, take your EZ-Rivet Tool and place the cabochon under the piercing point where you wish to add your jumpring.
Grasp the cabochon tightly and pierce through by twisting the handle bar in a clockwise motion. Make sure you continue to hold the cabochon when unscrewing the Rivet Tool to avoid any damage.

Step 2

Using the Findings Kit, take a thin 7mm jumpring and attach it through the hole you have just pierced but don't close it. You can then take an eyepin and push through a large 6mm round from the kit . You should then trim the eyepin and loop. The Beadsmith 1-Step Looper will come in handy. Attach one of these loops to the 7mm jumpring and close.

Step 3

To finish off your earrings, you will simply need to open the top loop of the eyepin with the 7mm round attached and hook it to an earwire (you will also find this in your Findings Kit).
