Tando Inchies Week

For Tando inchies week I made a little pair of earrings using the Tando Inchies Straight pack of shapes. These are great cheap Xmas gifts as the inchies cost just £1.90 and you get lots in a pack. They make great earrings because they are so lightweight. While they are not totally weather-proof, a coat of varnish will prolong their life - just don't wear them in a hurricane!!!

I firstly rounded two of the edges with a Corner Chomper to give a more pleasing shape. I then gessoed the shapes before adding a layer of Viva Decor Precious Metal Colour in Emerald then heat embossing the Rubber Dance background in gold. I edged the pieces with gold Krylon and sealed with varnish before finishing with a few crystals.

Why not make a matching pendant too?

Lots and lots of inchie inspiration over on the Tando blog this week - check it out!

  1. Love them! What a clever idea to use the inchies for earrings - I would never have thought of that. They turned out really cool! Thank you for using one of my stamps on this fun project, Katy! :-))) I'll check out more from Tando.
