I used silver foil paper and black cardstock and cut four of each shape so that the earring looks the same on the front and the back. I used Distress Embossing Ink (Versamark ink) and clear embossing powder, and pressed the black die cut shapes into it, then covered it with embossing ink, then heat set it to create a shiny surface. If you want it super shiny, add more embossing ink (Versamark ink) to the shape, and cover it with more clear embossing ink, then heat set it again.

Once it has cooled, take a jump ring and attach it to the hole in the paper. I took some beads I had on hand and put them on a wire, then about 1/8″ from the top bead, I made a loop and then wrapped the wire around itself twice or three times, then snipped off the rest of the wire to create a dangle. I went back to the paper and added another loop to it, then added an earring wire to this, then attached the dangle with beads on it with another jump ring. Did the same thing to create the second earring
