Wearable Art for your Ears

Inks & Foil with 18K Gold
What's on my work-table this week?  Earrings!  I love making earrings, they are practically the only jewelry I wear, other than my wedding ring.
I created a fern mold & made a few sets of these, with 14K gold findings. They are quite thin & delicate, with a generous coating of resin, to add shine & depth.
Of course, I had to make some purple earrings too, my favorite color!
These "Fairy Wing" earrings are something a bit different for me. I wasn't sure I liked them & I almost threw them in the reject bowl (yes, I have a Large reject bowl) but I managed to tweak them a bit & they turned out quite interesting!
I made these leaf shaped earring from an old Kaleidoscope cane. I love Hot Pink & Orange together, it's such a 70's retro look.
