Earring of the Week


These mirrored earrings match EVERYTHING. Okay, maybe that is not actually funny except to me. Anyhow, the mirrors will reflect whatever you are wearing or seeing that day. If you want to tone down the shiny mirror surface try sanding the back side of the mirror with a bit of sand paper to remove some of the coating. Voila! Instant vintage mirrors.

What did we use?
13x18 oval mirrors
13x18 antique copper bezel settings
antique copper ear wires
antique copper cable chain
copper cast birdies
4 mm coppery or bronzy glass beads
antique copper head pins
antique copper jump rings

We attached the mirrors to the bezels with a tiny drop of Diamond Glaze. You could also put an image or colored paper on the back of each of these bezels.

I love those tiny 3x4 mm oval jump rings. They are just the thing to attach dangles very discreetly. See them there at the top of the chain? No, that's not a chain link, it is just a really small jump ring. Perfect.

Don't forget, we have a template for all our bezels right here. Free for you.
