Emboss two Vintaj Artisan Copper Metal blanks using the Botanical Flourish DecoEtch die. Use a paint brush to apply Onyx Vintaj Patina to the impressions on the blank and use a paper towel to remove the paint while it is still wet, leaving it only in the impressions to accentuate the design. Buff with the Metal Reliefing block to highlight the raised designs. Punch or drill five holes at the bottom of each etched blank. Attach strung Swarovski crystal elements from fine ornate chain to create a cascading chandelier effect. Attach each etched blank an eye pin strung with a bead to French Ear Wires to form earrings. If desired, Vintaj Glaze can be used as a sealer for natural metals to prevent oxidation. It is fast-drying, durable and permanent with a satin finish.
