How To Make Easy Painted Mistletoe Earrings With Colourful Soul
On Monday's episode of Free Spirit Beading, we got to see Kristen do two things she loves - make jewelry and paint. Kristen is an incredible artist as well as a jewelry designer. She is also our graphic designer and a published author. If you ever need a heaping helping of crafty inspiration, she is definitely a person to watch. She sees the world differently and it shows!
Kristen wanted to make a seasonal set of earrings. She opted to grab her Colourful Soul Pop-Outs and Ultimate Paints and make a unique pair of mistletoe earrings. Painting on Pop-Outs is easy. The wood is forgiving. If you make a mess, you can wipe it up or even turn your mistake into part of the fun. You can color outside the lines if you want. Feel like a kid again with these colorful paints!
Kristen also gives a tutorial on how to make ear wire with Soft Flex Craft Wire. Learning how to make your own ear wire means that you can customize the look of the wire. Another way to get creative and make your jewelry one-of-a-kind.
