Colored Pencil Brick Earrings

These Colored Pencil  Brick Earrings feature small brick shape blocks of color pencils.  A clear epoxy resin highlights and protects this unique piece of Boho jewelry. The size is 1 1/4 x 1/2 x 1/2. The ear wires are Sterling Silver.  These earrings display a cross-section of cast color pencils that expose color leads on two sides and the pencil point dots on opposite sides.

My Jewelry Design Journey

I have been designing handmade wood jewelry since 2010.  I got the idea to cast colored pencils in clear epoxy resin. Once the resin sets up I cut the block into pieces to make unique jewelry.  The first pieces were color pencil bangle bracelets.  I discovered that as the bangle rotates the shape of the color pencil changes from a dot which is the point to a line of color lead.  This opened up a variety of design opportunities for creating earrings, pendants, and cufflinks.

Fashion Statement

This will make a fashion statement and receive attention when worn with any outfit. It is a great conversation piece and it is unlikely any adult will be able to identify colored pencils at first glance. Ask an adult what the colors are made of and they will not be able to provide 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. Interesting that we lose this spontaneity as we age.  Picasso once said, that every child is an artist and the problem is to stay an artist we we grow up.
