I sure didn’t wake up yesterday and say I’m gonna make some earrings today!, but sure enough, 6 hours later, that’s just what I was doing. The inclination seized me when I found my kids playing in our shed with some mysterious colored foil that my girly said had just been in there (?!). She had recently been playing with her polymer clay as well, so the two mediums collided in my head and I had to stop everything and make some jewelry. You know how it is.
These flashy little studs are so cool! I’ve been wanting some yellow earrings for a while, and these are just my thang thang. And they were so easy too!
All I did: Cut up tiny little snippets of foil (I used the mystery-shed-foil as well as my Jones foil–both worked famously), and then stuck them on a small ball of clay. That’s it. I baked them @ 275 for 15 minutes, and then gorilla glued those pretties to some cheap findings I had on hand. Oh, I also slapped on some gloss finish for same added sheen after all was said and done.
Sorry there are no model shots; I hadn’t washed my hair in like two days yesterday, and ain’t nobody want to see a close up of that. Hey when you’re susceptible to unpredictable compulsions of crafting, you can’t be relied upon to shower regularly.
What craft is seizing you today?
