Pentagon Color Pencil Earrings
Pentagon Color Pencil Earrings and Jewelry
This one of a kind pair of pentagon colored earrings from a cross-section of cast pencils. The size is 1 inch in each direction and approximately 1/4 inch thick. They drop about 1 1/4 inches. The ear wires are Sterling Silver.
These Pentagon Color Pencil Earrings features those triagular shape color pencils that change color as you rotate them while drawing. I don’t think the manufacturer, Koh-I Noor is aware of what I am doing with their Tri-Color Pencils intended for drawing. I hope they can appreciate that a pencil can be made into wood jewelry or a sculpture or a bowl.
I cut small sections of the triangular colored and glue five pieces to form this pentagon shape. Need a mathematician to write a formula on how triangles can from pentagons. Then I dome the piece with clear epoxy resin to highlight the colors and protect the earring. Finally, I add Sterling Silver ear wires for your comfort and protection.
Since 2010, I have been designing handmade wood jewelry. I got the idea that I could cast a block of colored pencils in clear epoxy resin. Once the resin sets up I would be able to cut the block into smaller 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.
This will make a fashion statement and get attention when worn with any outfit. It is a great conversation piece and will get lots of attention from friends and strangers.
Color Pencil Jewelry make an exceptional Artist Gift, Teacher Gift or gift for that special person in your life.
