New Embossed Metal Earrings





 I posted recently about practising using my Bigshot to emboss metal and now I have some finished earrings to show!
The copper "pansy" earrings above started life as copper discs that I used a Vintaj Deco Etch folder on to create the pretty flower and petal effect. The end result with the etch folders gives a more stamped look than etched to be honest but I do like it and have bought a couple more of the etch folders since.
The petals were created using a file then the flowers were sanded and domed and the bead and earwires added. I could've used my saw to cut out the petal shapes but decided to sit in the sun and file industriously for 15 minutes instead!

  6. Those copper earrings are well crafted. You have done a very good job. I do sell used jewelry online as well as fashion earrings. Do you mind if I ask where I can purchase those items? I want to sell them too.
