Wired up!

While I had my meltpot on last week, I thought I would try a new version of my extended earrings. I used a very small amount of red To Dye for ink in clear utee, and using the same technique, made long clear earrings. Once they were dry I added some gold wire wrapped round them , and then redipped them carefully. I used a clearish bead at the top as the base, and then added a little gold bead to hold the hooks, which I glued in.
I have given these earrings to a friend as a present, just hoping she likes them:)

Have a great day!
