I Love USA earrings

We made ours from thin (.005" thick) brass. Sandwich the brass between two pieces of 1/8" plywood, securing the layers with masking tape, and transfer the pattern. Using a No. 61 mini drill bit, bore the blade entry holes and the hanger hole. Cut with a No. 0 skip tooth blade at a medium to slow speed. Hang on brass/gold fish hook ear wires.

Brass eagle earrings

We made oure from thin (.005" thick) brass. Transfer the pattern to the material and bore the eye hole with a No. 61 mini drill bit. Cut with a No. 0 skip tooth blade at a slow to medium speed. For each earring, cut a gold eye pin to approximately 1-1/16" long and form a loop at the end to pass through the eagle's eye. Attach gold fish hook ear wires to the tops (see Fig. 2).

God Bless America necklace

Transfer the pattern to 1/8" Baltic birch plywood, bore blade entry holes, and cut with a No. 2 skip tooth blade. After sawing, use a No. 61 mini drill bit to make a hole through the top edge for installing the hanging hardware. Trim a head pin to 1-1/16" long and insert up through the hanger hole. Install four red, white, and blue "E beads" as shown in the photograph and form a loop at the top end of the head pin. Attach a gold/brass fish hook ear wire and bend to form a hanger.

Drill five holes with a No. 65 mini drill bit along the bottom edge of the design. Cut five head pins to lengths ranging from 3/4" to 1-1/4" (refer to the photograph for placement). Install one colored "E bead" on each pin. Insert the pins into the holes along the bottom. Hang on a gold chain.

Brass eagle necklace

We made ours from thin (.005" thick) brass. Transfer the pattern to the material. Bore the eye hole and blade entry holes with a No. 61 mini drill bit. Cut the eagle with a No. 0 skip tooth blade at a slow to medium speed. Make a hanger from a gold/brass fish hook ear wire (see Fig. 1). Hang on a gold/brass necklace chain.

I Love USA pin

We made ours from 1/8" Baltic birch plywood. Transfer the pattern to the wood for the overlay. Bore blade entry holes with a No. 61 mini drill bit and make the interior cuts. Stack the overlay piece with a 1/16" piece for the backer and saw around the outer line. Use No. 2 skip tooth blades to make the cuts.

Paint the backer with blue acrylic paint and the heart with red. Glue the backer to the rear of the overlay. Seal with clear acrylic coating. Attach a self-adhesive pin back and wear proudly!
