More found object earrings

Milagro Mexican charms of a head, said to heal all the illnesses of the head and mind...
Objects I found at the flea market, a seahorse and some medals,
These are not made with found objects, these are labradorite and freshwater pearls.
These are indeed found objects, one is a leaf made of wood, and the other is a mysterious bone.
Hardware and a mother of pearl button with glass crystal beads.

Earrings and other bits

Milagro charms and the leg bones of a rat. I love the faceted freshwater pearls.
Mexican milagros of a stabbed heart, known for the powers to heal a broken heart and other emotional wounds.

Religious earrings, Mexican style.
These ones are retro 80s romantic, they are vintage mirror beads.

Illustration and resin earrings

I saw paper earrings like this ones in the winter 2010 issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry, the concept is by Shannon LeVart. But I decided to make them with illustrations from a book from 1905 I got at a vintage store. They are covered with Ice resin, and in the back they have many coats of gel medium, so they are waterproof.

Bezel pendants

This bezel pendants are made with brass sheet and copper pipe, soldered together and then aged with a dark patina. The image in the center is an illustration from a book from 1905 (the book is very damaged so I don't mind cutting it), the image is preserved in resin. I used Ice Resin, a two part resin that is jewelry grade and non-toxic.
