Artsy Fartsy part 4!
Whenever I do something ambitious like the wind chimes, I unwind by doing a bunch of simple transfers. It helps my morale immensely and increases the earring count.
- The finished wind chime earring at long last. Those nicely-arranged chains took about five goes each to hang right.
- The finished pair has symmetry because I find symmetry satisfying
- Swapped pendant earrings are almost imperceptible from the originals
- The process goes thus: pick your bits to match, where possible
- Disconnect the pendant from the hook. This will bugger the hook beyond usability, but we don’t care about that
- Attach your clips. You may need a couple of rings to make sure it hangs right
- The screw-on clips pictured here are hybrids, meaning the wearer can adjust them for the best balance of comfort and hold. Beware of the ‘pure’ screw-on clips. They are a pain in the arse
- The pair pictured here still have my fingerprints on them
- Those tassels were so long, they made shoulder-ticklers all on their own
- But they were so easy to assemble - how could I resist?
Not a lot of lessons, here, but quite a lot of earrings got done, so I’m kind of proud. I’m trying for every style of earring plausible with clips, using affordable stuff whenever I can grab it.
