With Ribbon from Gwen Studios

ribbon earrings

Today I am back working with Gwen Studios ribbon as an application to be on their design team. We were asked to make jewelry or home decor and since I had already made a decor piece with ribbon, I chose to make earrings. These ribbon earrings use coordinating ribbons layered together. The fun thing about them is that you can make them at whatever length you want.

I would first like to thank Designer Crafts Connection for the opportunity to work with amazing companies and designers. Specifically for this post, I would like to thank Gwen Studios for providing me with an amazing box of materials to work with.

To make the earrings, you want to measure and cut your ribbons into different lengths. Starting with the widest ribbon as the longest. Keep in mind most of the ribbons will be folded in half.

I am a total fan of pink so they were the first pair of earrings I made. Gwen Studios has so many beautiful ribbons I couldn’t stop making only one pair.

Polymer Clay and UV Resin Earrings

I am really excited about the results I am achieving with this technique. I think I have only just scratched the surface of the possibilities. I really like how the paint (DecoArt Interference)¬†changes from white to colors when applied to a dark surface. The UV Resin really enhances the colors and gives emphasis to the dimension. I’ve only made earrings so far but I look forward to making pendants and more. The colors are so pretty and work together well.
