ICED Enamel Earrings

 

ICED Enamel Earrings

 

It was the day before I was to leave for CHA and I was looking over some of my paper work and noticed that for my ICE Resin demo it was suggested that I bring along samples of my work. UhOh! I only had a few samples on hand as I had gifted or sold most of the things I had made so I decided that ICED Enamel Earrings were in order. I needed earrings for at least one new top I had bought for the trip anyway.

If there are two super good reason to design your own jewelry 1 is that you can fix almost anything that breaks and 2 you can create jewelry for a special trip or event at the last minute. Right?

Because I was working on these last minute I used product I had on hand. Besides, I kind of wondered how ICED Enamels and ICE Resin would do on metal other than the metal sold by ICE Resin.

Did I mention that it was the day before I had to leave and that it was snowing and cold outside? Yeah. Totally using what I had on hand.

If you aren’t familiar with ICED Enamels I have a review over on Craft Test Dummies today that explains how the product works.

I love the finished look of this pair of earrings and the mix of metal finishes – silver, copper and gold. Plus they are just the right color for one of the tops I planned to wear.

I love these copper earrings with the little bit of sparkle on the edges and the grungy look of the patina on the same surface. I put the ICED Enamel Medium and ICED Enamel Powder on rather thick for this pair as I wanted more texture.

    These are beautiful Vicki! I wish I could make jewelry, but I always seems to get frustrated when I try!
    I am pinning this to my jewelry making board and maybe someday I will try it! Thanks for sharing!
