Earrings - 1. Cut two of the small circular deer images and coat the reverses with PVA. Position each one into a 20mm circular bezel, pressing down well as before, then leave to fully dry. Apply six coats of PVA to seal the paper, allowing it to dry between coats.
2. Once fully dry, pour a small amount of resin into the centre of each bezel, spread out to the edges and remove any air bubbles. Leave to dry.
3. Thread a 6mm red glass bead, a 10mm round fluted antique brass-plated bead, followed by another 6mm red round glass bead onto an eye pin and form a wrapped loop. Using jump rings, secure one of the bezels to each of the beaded eye pins. To finish, slip earwires onto the other ends
