My Mermaid Earrings

 Hi there bloggers, today I would love to share these cute earrings I made using from Piccolo Flower Charm Set from Globecraft. The Flower Charm set comes with a Charm for a necklace, and a matching set of earrings. I loved the size of the charm and opted to use 2 sets to make this pair of earrings.
 Here is a close up, I love the Mermaid Tears Embossing......My favorite powders.
 Using an Exacto knife, gently remove the lose pieces by cutting all the tick marks on earring. Do not pull apart the pieces because you can tear the chipboard.
Generously apply Embossing Powder Adhesive to the charm.
Using the Mermaid Tears Powder, I sprinkled powder all over the charm and put excess back into jar. I heat set my earring charms with my heat gun, cooled, and repeated the process again to achieve the 3 dimensional effect I was wanting.
Once cooled, I applied a thin layer of Glastique  to protect my earrings, Sterling Silver ball hook, and then I added Swarowski crystals to give my earring that finishing touch.

Products Used:
  • Flower Drop Charm Set (2) - Piccolo
  • Mermaid Tears Emboss Powder - Piccolo 
  • Embossing Powder Adhesive - Piccolo
  • Glastique - Globecraft
  • Swarowski Crystal - Jolee
  • Ball Hooks - Cousins
  • Heat Gun

Thanks for stopping by,

♥ Michelle
