Gold Sprinkled Pearl Cluster Studs Tutorial

This is what we're making!

Here's what you need:

  • 2- 5mm crystal montees
  • 2 studs in antique gold
  • 2 freshwater pearls (see where I got mine!)
  • 2- 8 or 10mm flat earring posts
  • 2 earring backings
  • E 6000 adhesive

These are optional!

  • 6 gold seed beads
  • 2 gold triangle nail studs
  • gold leaf

Do this:

  1. fold prongs in on studs. apply a tiny dab of glue to all prongs as well as to earring post. 
  2. lightly press stud onto post. continue and apply crystal montee and pearl onto post.

You can leave it simple but I would suggest using a smaller, perhaps 6mm earring post, instead. 

Adding details:

  1. glue nail stud onto one facet of stud.
  2. glue seed beads into empty corners of earring post.
  3. dab small amounts of adhesive onto pearls and rub gold leaf on until you get your desired effect. 
  4. cap the pearl with varnish or gloss. I used seche vite clear top coat!

It's finished! Match these with a gold detailed clutch?
