Metal Feather Earrings

About this design:

These new paddle focals are fantastic for making a quick embellished necklace or a great pair of earrings. I decided to make earrings but added a little color using Vintaj Patina Inks.

    What great components and so inexpensive! It would take me hours of measuring, cutting, forging, filing and sanding to make these. Love the metal paint colors!

    Beautiful and no one needs to know that you didn’t do the long tedious part, but the fun coloring and putting together!

    I love the colors you chose & I especially love the fact that you actually thought to color the metal!! It takes that cute focal to a way higher level. Thanks for sharing your brilliant idea!

    Oops, I meant earrings, not focal. It’s hard for me to grasp sizes on screen :)

    I love all your jewelry but would like to make chokers with slide on charms. Where did you purchase those ? I loved them.

    Love this look. I’d like to know how you got the paint on without touching the other bars?
