This Colored Pencil Jewelry Display makes for another great weekend at the NWA Woodworking Event in Saratoga 2016. Award for First Place for my color pencil jewelry. Pendants, Earrings and Cufflinks which are available in my shop.
I began designing handmade wood jewelry in 2010 with wood pendants and adding jewelry components like beads, bales, chain, leather. Then I had an idea to cast colored pencils in resin. The first pieces were color pencil bracelets that I turned on the lathe. I noticed that as I would rotate the bangle the shape of the color changes from a dot which is the pencil point to an oval and finally a color line. This opened design opportunities to experiment with this finding. I began making paperweights, money clips, earrings and cufflinks from colored pencils.

Earrings make a fashion statement and always receive attention. They are great conversation pieces. Ask a friend what the colors are made of and most will not be able to offer an answer. When you tell them it is color pencils they will respond, “Wow.” Ask a child and they will say colored pencils almost immediately. Picasso said it best, “Every child is an artist. The problem is staying an artist when you grow up.”
