Making Foiled Earrings

with Ann Butler Designs

I enjoy making jewelry out of a variety of different materials. Sometimes those materials are unexpected. That is the case with these earrings. I am using patterned toner sheets designed by Ann Butler Designs then applying foil to them. Can you tell the earrings are made from foil and paper? Let me walk you through the process.

I would first like to thank Designer Crafts Connection for the opportunity to work with amazing companies and designers. And specifically for this post, I would like to thank Ann Butler Designs for providing materials used with this project.

There are eleven other projects created for this Design Crafts Connection hop. Please take a moment to visit all the projects to see how each designer worked with Ann Butler Designs.

Working with the floral set, I chose to use this leaf patterned toner sheet and silver foil. The image above also shows a solid toner sheet and carrier paper. To adhere the foil to the patterned toner sheet, I am going to send it through my laminator.

Once the foil is transferred, I use a paper punch to cut circles from the sheet. Then the circles are coated with UV resin. You can see them in the image below.

I am also working with materials provided by Maker’s Movement. Using a die to cut silver faux leather, I ran it through my Mini Maker. The jewelry findings are also from Maker’s Movement.

The entire process can be seen in the video tutorial below.

The faux leather has a white edge and back. To finish the earrings off, I am using a paint pen in silver to change those white areas to silver. This provides a more professionally finished appearance to the earrings.
