At our last craft club get-together it was my turn to organize and teach a craft. I chose several earring and ring projects. I’ve already shared the cabochon jewelry with you and today we’re moving on to a glitter project. {No surprise there, right. ;) } It’s actually quite similar to the glitter necklace pendant I shared a while back.

Enjoy!

 

Supplies needed

 

1. Cover the glass base for both the ring and earrings in glitter. I show you how to do this in my glitter necklace pendant tutorial. Let dry.

2. Gently brush varnish on glitter and let dry.

3. Add a dab of glue to the glass tile and attach to ring or earring base. Let dry.

Once the earring base is dry, connect the jump rings to the base and earwire.

{Note – we used Martha Stewart’s Tinsel Glitter for the earrings and the results are stunning! I highly recommend it for these earrings.}

 

If you’re planning on giving the earrings as a gift you can trim a piece of cardstock with a decorative hole punch. Fold it over and insert the ear wires into the holes.

We started out by “gluing” the houses together. This was a little tricky and some […]
