Special Earrings

On our Parchment group we were set a challenge to try something we hadn't done before.  I decided to make something 3D with parchment.


 
These earrings are from a pattern by Alison Yeates from Parchment Craft Magazine May 2010.  First I had to colour some plain parchment with fuchsia, violet and green ink on both sides.  I traced the pattern onto the coloured parchment and then shaped them by embossing.  The stamens are made using headpins and seed beads.

What a lovely idea, Jack - these are so realistic and must have taken a while to make. Love them and the way you presented them, too x
