Here is my second project from the Far East Stack 2:
These are earrings I made using an Epiphany Crafts hexagon Shape Studio punch. It simultaneously punches paper, and covers it with a shaped epoxy cap. They have buttons, banners, butterflies, all kinds of shapes. I like hexagons.
The background is tone-on-tone paper with Chinese writing from the stack. I stamped it with another Chinese ideograph, then punched it, and mounted the paper-backed epoxy in a bezel. Epiphany sells bezels for their various punch shapes. The bezels are NBUS, although I’ve used the epoxy caps before.
I went through a jewelry-making phase a few years ago. I’m better at papercrafting, but I still have all the tools and findings. With these punches and such, I can do both.
Obviously, there’s a ton more paper in the stack to work with, but I said I’d do two projects. So, on to the next stack! I wonder which it will be?
UPDATE: The Clear It Out Challenge has a theme of “Anything Goes” this week, so I added these earrings. Why not?
