Materials and Tools:

ArtEmboss black matte embossing metal
Marvy Uchida small and large daisy punches
spray adhesive
seed beads, gold
decorative beads, silver
spacer beads, gold and silver
small rhinestones
18-gauge black wire

silver necklace chain
silver ear wires
round-nose pliers
1/16" hole punch

Steps:

1. Cut metal into two approximately 2" x 4" pieces.

2. Adhere metal pieces together using spray adhesive. This increases durability.

5. Glue spacer beads and rhinestones into the center of each flower.

6. Cut four 2-inch lengths of wire. Form a loop at one end with round-nose pliers.

7. Lace on beads: gold seed bead, then decorative silver bead, then gold seed bead, etc. Trim wire and form a loop. Repeat with all four wires.

8. Assemble beads and flowers together. Attach to necklace chain.

9. Attach single flowers to ear wires.
