pink zebra bead textured earrings

Use a multi-function hammer kit, by ImpressArt®, to texture the metal blanks for these beautiful Pink Zebra Bead Textured Earrings.
Step 1

Tape two drop blanks onto your steel block.

Step 2

Insert the ball peen hammer attachment into the hammer and strike your blanks until you have the desired hammered look.
TIP: Move your block around to hammer at different angles to get an even design.

Step 3

Remove the tape.

Step 4

Punch three holes around the bottom of each hammered drop with a screw down punch tool. Set the drops aside.
TIP: Use a marker to add dots on the back to use as a guide to punch the holes.

Step 5
Make six bead drops from semi-precious and metal beads. To make bead drops:
  • Slide three Pink Zebra beads and one metal bead onto a headpin.
  • Bend the wire of the headpin in a 90° angle just above the metal bead.
  • Grasp the headpin wire, about 3/8"-½" [0.3 cm-1.3 cm] from the bend, between the jaws of your round nose pliers.
  • Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire, until a small loop is formed, and the looping wire is perpendicular above the metal bead.
  • Wrap perpendicular wire around the vertical wire about two times then trim excess wire.
Step 6

Attach the bead drops to the punched holes around the bottom of your hammered drops with jump rings.

Step 7

Add fishhook earrings to the pre-punched holes at the top of each hammered drop.
