Skull and bowns Earrings

Skull and Bowns earrings
Earrings made from faux turquoise skulls, but attributed with small bows rather than bones. You can add an extra touch by decorating the skull's eye sockets with small rhinestones.
Suggestions for making these earrings
  • Start by placing the rhinestones in the eye sockets of the skulls. I have used 3 mm stones since the eye sockets of the skulls are not very deep, and the 4 mm stones would probably stick out a bit too much.
  • If necessary, you can use a pin to maneuver the stones into their correct position. It might be an idea to apply the glue in this manner, for it allows you to be very precise.
  • Allow the glue to dry for several hours.
  • Make sure the loops of the eyepin are bent correctly, otherwise the skull will not face forward.
  • First, place the bow with a small ring under the skull, and make sure you attach the ear hook as the final step of the process; when I made the earrings myself this turned out to be the most successful method ;)
