These ones were made with some oyster(??) shells i found on the beach and one of them had these gray/dark cherry red tones and the other didn't so i ended up staining it a bit with alcohol inks. Can you tell which one is which? I'm actually pleased that it came out so similar because i was trying to tone down the whiteness of the plain shell.
I also used some enamel beads i made and some found beach glass that i used some epoxy on to hang a loop. And some amethyst chips.
These ones here i used components from these other earrings that didn't sell and i worked it around a bit to create a better, nice pair. There's a lot of gold leafing, and gold pen and the gold reclaimed metal bracelets that i twisted and shaped. Then i used piercing jewelry that i got from the shop.
That place is madness! they have this huge discount wall of piercing jewelry and they're all scattered and you gotta look for a long time to pair stuff up. There was a greeter guy at the door near the piercing jewelry wall and ......yes a guy working in a girl's accessories shop lol.......and i guess he must've been bored cos he asked me how many piercings i have. Why else would i buy 5 packaged of pairs in one shot? haha
Cos i gotta do this....
