Hand painted Capiz shell earrings.
*sorry for the slightly strange layout. I've had alot of trouble trying to set this post up. The template is not easy to use :(
There's a story behind these shell earrings. I was in Maine last summer and I was at my Grandmother's house in her basement. She had a glass jar full of white round shells from a broken mobile. I asked her if I could have them to paint on for earrings. She let me bring 'em home.
The shells had been sitting in my room for months. Recently I started thinking about painting them. Visualizing ideas of what I could paint. I pulled out the shells and got to work. Often times each pair might take about one hour to paint. Certain ones with tons of details and dots take a lot of time. I enjoy taking time to do detailed work.
I love beachy summery accesories. I have recently posted these earrings in my Etsy shop. If you have an idea for a custom pair that you'd want to order, let me know.
(I recently picked up a "mess of feathers" and 3 vintage clutches to decorate. I want to put them together and post on etsy too... The decked out clutches would be perfect for a wedding or formal event.)
