My earrings are all hand painted paper (painted by me). I use a variety of mediums including water color paint, acrylic paint, markers, ink and even coffee, tea, wine and food coloring... When I'm satisfied with my work I seal and hand cut the paper, coat each side of each earring with resin (about 48 hrs to cure between sides) and drill a hole in each one. Finally I attach the sterling silver findings. Every year I create 3-5 earring themes and when the paper from those themes are gone, they are gone. Also, my style is to make earrings that resemble eachother but do not match exactly, thus making each pair of earrings utterly unique.
