I wanted to make a pair of matching earrings. I started by painting some wooden beads with nail polish in a gold colour. (I like to paint with nail polish, because I think the colours are rich and vibrant. I have painted cards with nail polish before.)
Once the nail polish had dried, I threaded the wooden beads and some other beads on a piece of wire. I gripped the end of the wire with round tongs, and bent it to fit into the loop of a pendant. Then it was finished and looked like the earring in the photo to the left. :)
I wish you all a merry x-mas!
