Cut and Sculpt Celtic Design Earrings

Construction and Finishing

Varnish It's usually better to use 2 or 3 thin layers rather than a single thick coat. If you use liquid type, use a throw-away brush, varnish will ruin fine brushes. Allow to dry thouroughly before finishing project.
Jump Rings Open jump rings with needlenose pliers: hold ring with pliers in one hand and twist open with pliers in the other hand, just enough to allow ring to slip over edge of earring and through the hole.
Fish-hook Wire Slip loop of earring wires over jump ring and use pliers to close. Make sure that the celtic pattern will be facing front before you do, though...=)
Your earrings are ready to wear!
