Molten silver earrings

You are seriously going to laugh at how easy and inexpensive it is to make these look-alike melted silver earrings! It took me probably 10 minutes to set up and finish a pair of earrings. The “molten silver ore” is nothing but hot glue drizzled into a cup of ice water. After that, all you have to do is paint with silver leaf (I used a liquid leaf, but you can try the real leafing if you want), and then just twist open the end of an earring hook, slip it into a gap in the faux melted silver, close it back up with a pair of jewelry pliers, and you’re done!
By the way, these earrings are also very lightweight.
Watch this video and see how easy they are to make:

  1. Marty, I love this effect. I think I will try it for my MIL she is coming for a weekend soon and I want to give her a little something. I don’t have liquid silver leaf, but I do have the sheets. Hopefully I can pull it off.
