Ultramarine Blue Earrings Made From Upcycled Plastic With Paisley

Image Description
A retro style paisley pattern in ultramarine blue is stenciled on these cheerful, upcycled plastic earrings. Clear, lightweight rectangles are splashed with bold blue color that catches the eye with stylish design. These eco-friendly earrings are made by shrinking the lids from plastic food containers to create something beautiful and lasting. I traced stencil patterns onto them with permanent marker before shrinking. After, they're sealed with a thin coat of glossy, water-based polyurethane for shine. The feather light dangles are about 1.5 inches long by 1 inch wide. They're trimmed with pretty blue glass seed beads and affixed to surgical steel posts with backings.
