Striking earrings with a nod to the 80s Italian design group, Memphis. These are so easy to make, incorporating our vintage terrazzo-style solid resin pendants.
- Black vintage earring findings
- Vintage terrazzo danglers
- Black C-Lon beading cord
- Yellow ribbon
- Adhesive (super glue or similar)
Take around 10" (25cm) of beading cord and knot it twice on to the bottom of the black earring.
Thread the cord through the metal hoop on the terrazzo dangler, front to back. Knot it twice at the back.
For extra strength, knot the thread twice more at the front and twice more at the back. Trim off the excess, leaving just a couple of mm on the knots.
Take 4" (10cm) of yellow ribbon and wrap it around the top of the terrazzo dangler, covering the beading thread. It should cross over at the back, forming a cone-like cap.
Secure the yellow ribbon with superglue or any other strong, clear, quick drying adhesive.
Trim off excess yellow ribbon and you're done.
