Paisley Drops


Now here's a quick and easy project: Friendly Plastic teamed with silver jewellery findings to create a unique pair of earrings.

Using Friendly Plastic and the marbling technique, I've cut out two leaves with a small cutter and given them a coat of resin. All that's needed to transform the Friendly Plastic from fantastic to fabulous is the glitz of a few Swarovski crystals - after all, what would drop earrings be without bling?!!

Notice how the leaf shape mimics the paisley links - they're a good match for each other and because the leaf is slightly narrower than the paisley base you can see the outline of the paisley. After that, the only jewellery making skill you need to put these earrings together is knowing how to open and close jump rings. I've linked the silver paisley shapes to a teardrop frame.

The fantastic paisleys are from the Organics range (Horizons Group) and the silver teardrop is from Plaid's Fresh range.

I'll be drawing the winner of the Glitter Artistry book giveaway tonight so this is your last chance to enter the draw. All you have to do is to leave your comments on my post: All that Glitters. Good luck!
