Florence Collection

Jo Post Earring Set

Jo_earring_post_set_sm Pin-it%402x

Details

Post earrings are back in a big way and now you can consider yourself stocked with classics. Make all three sets or mix and match a few components for a statement button earring. We’ve got you covered with an of-the-moment pear silhouette, faceted gold balls, and vintage studs in iridescent crystal.

If you use several stones to create a statement ear you can still use the rest of the post backs. Almost anything small and light can become a post earring.

Tools

  • E6000 glue

Materials

  • vintage iridescent crystals
  • pear crystals in brass setting
  • Czech glass faceted gold balls
  • 4mm posts with butterfly catch

1

Gather your little components and the E-6000 glue. You may want to work over a paper or paper towel.

2

Hold the first post with the flat back up and add a small drop of glue to the cup.

3

With the first component face down place the post on top of it flat side down. Hold the post in place for a minute to let the glue set. The glue starts to set in about ten minutes and fully cures in 24-72 hours.

That's it. It's super simple. It's the same process for each of the earrings. Allow the glue to dry completely, about 10 minutes, before wearing them.

Feel free to mix and match components. We've made posts with sequins as well as with a cluster of all three components. If you have extra post backs you can create additional earrings with anything that is small and light enough to glue to the post backs.

@allthestuffwelove Yeah! So glad you love them. We fell in love with the components for this earring and bought them in bulk from our vintage dealer. We've had such a great response to the materials we ship in each box that we're working on adding the ability to buy more of something you love soon. In the meantime you may want to check out a few options for buying more: http://www.dreamtimecreations.com/category/1122/rhinestones-sew-on/sew-on-pear-rhinestones/sew-on-pear-rhinestones-in-settings/

I would like to know where I would be able to get more of these lovely earring components. Actually, I would love to know where to get more components for all of our projects. They are all beautiful <3

@Jlip We have a few posts coming up on the blog about alternative things to do with the components but they also make an awesome gift.

@Zourloubidou To make the cluster earring place the three components face down on your work surface and add glue in between the components. Once that glue has started to dry (10 minutes should be fine) glue the post in the center.

I am very excited about this new box! I just wanted to ask how you put the three components together? Do you directly glue them together?
