I always love the inspiration, information and all around good stuff shared on Art Jewelry Elements. Today’s post in particular, such a nice tutorial for making earrings with gorgeous glass headpins, all from Jen Cameron. Something made me think of the polymer headpins I had made once, just playing with the idea one afternoon – uh, at least three years ago!
So often I went to poke around the studio to see if I could find them. They weren’t in various boxes of experiments and as I stood in the middle of the room just being still and scanning. I caught sight of them - there in souvenir shot glass under a layer of dust, were my organic shaped head pins.
Not a single pair in the lot! I was just experimenting with shape. Clearly these colours would be better off with copper too but I think there are some ideas here to work from. I will be making time to play with this this week. I’m here telling you to make sure I get it done and come back and share!
