Good Monday morning! It's a Beadiful Day!


Decoupage is on the agenda for this morning.  These earrings are pretty and bright, light weight  and lots of fun! They are wooden hearts decoupaged in fabric and gold foil with 10 layers of matt finish, sanding and two layers of high gloss varnish. They are finished with goldtone jumprings and earring wires and are part of my new line of affordable art hearts. A lot of hours of work goes into the craft of Decoupage, but this craft, which began in Venice, as a "poor man's hobby" combines bits and pieces of many different elements, such as paper, paint, fabric, metals, and often fragments of  language to name just a few of those elements needed  to create a "whole."  The process certainly can bring about a cathartic and very expressive experience. Take a look at my growing collection of decoupage jewelry in my Etsy shop.
