Earrings with Swarovski Crystal Embellishments and Gold-Plated Brass Cones

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut open a 16mm fancy bead cone along the seam on one edge. Bend the cone open so the two sides are laying concave as flower petals. Repeat to create six open 16mm fancy bead cone flower petals.
STEP 2
Bend the leaves on a 15mm leaf style bead cap to where the four leaves are flat and slightly inverted.
STEP 3
Mix together the Apoxie® Sculpt, 2-part epoxy molding compound according to the manufacturer's instructions.
STEP 4
Lay three open 16mm fancy bead cone flower petals with the narrow ends together forming a circle. Place a small amount of epoxy in the center of the bead cones to adhere them together. Gently but firmly, press the leaf bead cap into the epoxy in the center of the circle.

Place a small amount of epoxy on top of the leaf bead cap and gently center a Swarovski vitrail 14mm rivoli in the center of the bead caps. Allow the epoxy to set up according to manufacturer's instructions.
STEP 5
Repeat to adhere a flat pad earstud to the back center of the three open 16mm fancy bead cone flowers petals.
STEP 6
Repeat Steps 3 - 5 to create the second earring.
