I love these gorgeous faux-gauge wooden earrings, but since the natural wood color was close to my hair, they tended to blend it. So I painted them.


Before:



The idea is psychedelic rainbow peacock so they fit in real nice with my wardrobe. I like that although they look like wings, they are vegan-no feathers, or bones (which is often used for this style earring). I wear them backwards by the way, inserting the post from behind.

I painted them with acrylics, with no primer or sealant. They really stand out now, and I absolutely love them!

Very pretty colouring you used.  I think they look so much better painted than plain.

Thanks everybody! I'd held off on painting them for a couple years, because they were so nice in their natural state. But I'm sure glad that I moved on.
