Mondrian Inspired Colored Pencil Earrings

This one of a kind Inspired Colored Pencil Mondrian wood Earrings to feature a cross-section of resin cast color pencils. The sections are cut up many times to create the horizontal and vertical grid sections with bold colors from the pencil leads.  Mondrian, a master abstract artist is famous for painting grids and filling them with bright colors. Strong lines and bold colors are the voice of a Mondrian painting.  I hope I come close to capturing the Mondrian effect with these jewelry items.

The Beginning

The bronze finish bezel size is 2 inches by 3/8 inch wide and approximately 1/8 inch thick. The color pencil sections feature a clear dome of epoxy resin to highlight the colors and protect the jewelry.

I began designing handmade wood jewelry in 2010.  I cast a block of color pencils in clear epoxy resin. Once the resin sets up I cut the block into smaller pieces to make unique jewelry.  My first pieces are color pencil bangle bracelets.  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 opens up a variety of design opportunities for creating earrings, pendants, and cufflinks.

This item will make a fashion statement and get attention when worn with any outfit. It is a great conversation piece.  Most of your friends will not be able to identify the color pencil inserts, but will be drawn to the exception colors.  When you finally tell them that they are color pencils, they will respond, “Wow.”  Ask a child what they see and the answer is quick and correct, “color pencils.” Have fun with this handmade jewelry.
