Scads of Earrings

The new photo box has curtailed my claying this week. I have been busy starting to create a more cohesive library of my creations. Since I seem to have a lot of  earrings,  I started there. 

These are a pair of one of the first earrings I made  by covering white beads (made courtesy of the bead roller) with alcohol inks.
This combo created one of my favorite earrings. The ink colors used were Stream and Yellow.  I wear a lot of turquoise so these earrings see a lot of ear time.
These are another pair of my favorites.  The dots were made by carefully removing ink from the solidly colored base.

Here I first painted the white based bead with silver acrylic paint followed by coloring the bead with green ink.  Makes a very shiny bead.

This was made the same as above, only using a pinkish ink. The dots were added afterwards using silver acrylic paint and a toothpick. there are only a few made this way.

So much for this days ramblings, off to take more pictures and feed the Underfeet.

  1. Neato. All your earrings seem to be shiny. Did you coat them with something after you put the alcohol ink on them?
