A simple, polished silhouette is created by setting the thin spike focal into a cord end. Turquoise is my favorite color in every shade, so using these was a no brainer. These will match just about everything I own :)

Supplies you’ll need:

2 thin spike focals 2 5mm cord ends 2 earwires

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 2

Using a toothpick or headpin dab your epoxy into the cap. Don't add too much, you don't want it to ooze out!

Step

Step 3

Place your focal into the cap. Twist the focal in the cap to evenly spread the epoxy around. If any epoxy comes out, quickly wipe it away before it dries.

Step

Step 4

Once your epoxy has set, it's time to hook on your ear wires. You will need to select ear wires that have a larger loop to accommodate sliding through the hole on the cap. A trick I used to make the loop more cooperative (shown in first image) is to use pliers and gently squeeze on the center of the loop. Then bend your loop to the side to slip the wire through the hole in your cap.
