Earrings from my picture creations

So the pictures covered with Magic gel turned out nice and fully cured. I read somewhere that they stay tacky but it is pretty cold in the house again, so maybe that is why they are dry. I wonder if it will change when they get warm or when spring warms up.. But so far so good. Will have to take some pictures coming weekend when I have more time. They are very shiny, maybe I can put them on the scanner.
So I made earrings out of the tree picture pendants. With an attempt to wire wrap, or at least make decent little loops. One earring came out a lot longer than the other so I had to do it again, and I am afraid I mauled the silver colored wire with my little pliers. I know you can protect the tip with some paper tape to prevent the wire from getting beat up and tarnish later on. But I thought this would be quick. Not so, but all done now and I will proudly wear them to work tomorrow. I added some pretty light blue crystals as a dangle from a badly strung bracelet my husband got for me in Taiwan. Contrary to what you might think, he had trouble finding cheap things "made in Taiwan" there. I guess they are all shipped to the rest of the world.
So now I have to re-string the rest of the beads into a necklace.
Tomorrow night I am supposed to go boating on the Schuylkill but it is supposed to rain again. Bummer, we will never get in race shape with all this weather we've been having !

  1. So it is now hot as it will ever be and the Mod Podge is holding up well, no tackiness or anything. It is soft enough you can make an indentation with your nail if you try, so not as hard as glass. But a very good protective and permanent layer.
