Spring Lilies Earrings


About this design:

I wanted to make a pair of earrings from the Vintaj Spring Rain Earring Kit. First, I used a small paintbrush to paint the desired colors (from the Vintaj weathered copper patina kit) of patina onto the piece. Then I used the 1.25mm Euro punch pliers to punch 2 extra holes in the piece. I sanded the patinas and the arte metal to the desired look. I then made the charms using the Vintaj pearl head pins (24 g). Attach the charms using the Vintaj arte metal jump rings and the French ear wire. All done!

    Thanks ladies! The patinas are super fun to work with. I would check them out if you haven’t yet. I just used a small paint brush to apply the color exactly where I wanted it. Super easy!!!

    Oh Cathy, I’m so excited! Your earrings are so beautiful, and lily of the valley is my birth flower. You’ve solved a problem for me. I love Green Girl Studios pewter charms, but I have a hard time figuring out what to combine them with so they show up well. I think I’ll try the copper patinas on the little mermaid girl pendant, that I’ve been struggling with to make a necklace for my sister. Those would be sort of seaweedy and salt water colors that could really work with the theme. Thank you so much! Marilyn T.

    I to love Lilys of the Valley , they have always been my fav flower since i was very little , i now have my own lily … my daughter .. Lily May , and i forgot were it was but i read that lilys of the valley was named from little bell flowers of May , so it was ironic that may was a family name and my daughter got lily may and lilys of the valley are my fav flowers , and my jewerly come with a card with lily’s of the Valley jewerly design attached … i’m always happy to see lilysof the valley’s used , or even sold as jewerly , or anything , seems like those gourgouse little fairy skirt looking flowers are over looked for Daisy , roses , dalihas etc
