After making some Embossed Necklace & Earring sets, I was still having so much fun with my new toy, that I decided to make some earrings too...

Starry Night Earrings

These earrings were inspired by Van Gogh's painting Starry Night Over the Rhone.  They were made with the Vintaj Arte Metal, which is black when purchased, but is silver after sanding.  They were embossed with swirling bits of clouds from the Moonlit Night folder, and painted with Cobalt, Onyx & Sapphire patina before being glazed.  The beads are golden Swarovski crystals.  I love how they came out, and was really surprised at how lightweight they are.  Even though they are about 2" long, I actually forgot I was wearing them!





Elven Earrings
These earrings were inspired by the Elven Brooches in the Lord of the Rings films.  These were made with Vintaj Arte Metal, coated with Emerald patina, and sanded & distressed to create age.  They hang from long gunmetal hooks.  They hang about 2.25" long total.
