Resin Channel Earrings

Resin Channel Earrings

Yet another experiment for an earring design. This time I sculpted rounded rectangles in polymer clay. Then I dug out a channel down the length on one side and punched a hole where the channel stopped. The rectangles were then dusted with a dark copper metallic powder and cured. To fill the channel, I mixed a bit of green metallic powder with resin and filled the channel on each piece. I added a couple of layers of plain resin over the top to give it depth and put a couple of dots next to the channel for good measure. ๐Ÿ˜‰

After the resin was cured, I attached some jump rings to the hole below the channel and hung a couple of tiny metallic charmsโ€“one an antiqued round and the other a very shiny silver oval (it’s difficult to see from the photo, but the antiqued and shiny charms add a nice contrast and some movement.)

I definitely plan on trying another variation on this idea, but must remember to make the polymer clay much thinner. Getting a jump ring through the bottom for the charms was a little tricky. I prefer much smaller components but the thickness of the clay prevented that. However, the larger hardware give the earrings a more industrial feeling, which I really like!

      Hi Cristina! Hahaha! I know…I know…I really should set something up soon. I felt bad that it had been a while since I posted anything new. I have so many ideas…and so little time. I’m sure you know how that is! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hahaha! You are inflating my head by the second saying all these lovely things! ๐Ÿ™‚
