These amber cherry blossom earrings hang beautifully and the amber spangles glisten in the light.
All you need to make these earrings is some Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy glue which is the glue that we recommend. The Devcon glue creates super-fast, high strength, high quality bonds and as it sets clear it is excellent for filling gaps so ideal for setting stones. For full instructions plus some hints and tips on mixing and application click here.
Prepare the glue by mixing equal amounts of the resin and hardener in a small dish. Use a fine point such as a cocktail stick to dab a bit of glue onto the cap of the peg and gently place it in the hole in the amber gemstone teardrop. Once mixed, the glue sets in 5 minutes so ensure your bead straight away. Gently place it down and leave it to set.
After five minutes, using snipe or flat nose jewellery pliers open a jump ring and loop on the cherry blossom charm and the amber teardrop, then loop onto the earwire and secure. For more tips on opening and closing jump rings click here.
