Golden Plum Barrette

Print this Learning Center Idea


Golden Plum Barrette Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

This beautiful barrette looks like an exquisite antique handed down for generations. As hair accessories are all the rage, you'll love creating and wearing this barrette embellished using Swarovski flatbacks and cabochons.

Step One: Use the Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to attach the oval glass cabochons in amethyst opal to the barrette. Allow cabochons to set up to the point where they won't slide around. Use Swarovski XILION flatbacks in sizes SS7, SS12 and SS16 to fill in the remaining spaces on the barrette. For help applying Swarovski flatbacks visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Allow to dry completely before wearing.
