These heart earrings were hand made from recycled plastic bottles! The textured plastic catches the light really beautifully. Both layers were cut out by hand with scissors. Why do I always mention the scissors? Because I take pride in cutting my designs by hand. There are hole punches available where you can simply cut the heart (or other shapes) out in one punch. I think that takes the art and design away. Everything would look the same. What fun is that? Maybe I am nuts for doing it by hand, but I think that the hard road is the better one.
I'll be playing at Elk Mtn. tomorrow (1-3-09) from 2pm-6pm!
