Text Earrings

I have several pairs of resin earrings that have finally cured hard and crystal clear and I’m now able to finish them.  It usually takes a solid three days for Ice Resin to cure thoroughly.  Much depends on the room temperature.  If it’s colder than 72 degrees, it take longer.  And when it’s humid it seems to take longer also.  And, of course, it must be measured in exact proportions or it will never cure.  I’m really having fun with these.  I made several elongated irregular fine silver bezels that are somewhat asymmetrical.  I favor an oxidized finish for these which makes them look mellow and aged.  The text in these earrings reads “Enchanted by the Songs of Sirens”.  I like the theme  – it’s kind of romantic.  Attached to the bottom of the earrings, tiny Swarovski bicone crystals dangle from twisted silver wires.  These petite earrings are  made colorful with additions of dry pastel, tiny glass shards and just a smidge of fairy dust glitter!
