miniature paintings - acrylic - Earrings

Can you believe these are earrings?

I came across these by accident today. They were tossed in a drawer and forgotten about. (maybe that's a good thing LOL) I put these together quickly last year for a party we were attending. There was going to be a lot of people there who didn't know each other. You were to dress up as your occupation or your "favourite" occupation. I didn't want to be obvious so I dressed normally and added these earrings as the only hint. I thought it was going to be so hard to guess "artist". Wrong. .... someone guessed right away...

They are just tiny (for paintings) large for earrings I guess. about 1.25" each way. I think I might take the backs off and offer them for sale to the dollhouse people.

WOW, it is unbelievable how much detail you got in these tiny little paintings.
What a fun way to announce that you are an artist. You should keep them and wear them when you have an artist reception at your local gallery. Way cool!!!

I can't see me ever having a reception at a local gallery, but wouldn't that be something :)

Thank you by the way for all your support. It really means so much to me.

Very nice Leola! I think you most certainly could have a reception at a gallery! I've been to them...never had a solo show, but they'll let anyone into the receptions - even if you aren't an artist, but just there to enjoy the fine art. So Maria is right...wear these to a gallery opening!

WOW very impressive, such detail and what a great idea as earrings!
Well done Lee : ) You should be proud to wear them.

You did a good job on these earrings. It must have taken a long time.

Those are just too neat! I bet they looked really good as ear rings! Beautiful!

What an awesome idea, did you use oven bake clay and acrylic? I love using jewelry to express my creativity. however, not being a jewelry myself, i rely on other works. I'm never satisfied until I'm wearing something hand made and breath taking.
