Teal and Jade Hot Air Balloon wooden dangle earrings silver plated finish

Go up up and away with these fun wooden earrings of hot air balloons!

I have hand painted these wooden birch plywood (Sustainable FSC approved) shapes of hot air balloons, with two coats of a light teal artists acrylic paint both front and back, with the 'basket' under the balloon painted alight brown colour.

I've then added a layer of teal embossing enamel, followed by another layer - this time of a darker teal colour, called Malachite fire. I used a deep yellow embossing enamel on the basket called vintage beeswax. I then finally added a clear layer of the entire hot air balloon shape - this enhances the colours and all the mica pigments within the embossing enamel, making it sparkle and shimmer!

On the back, I added a dry brush effect using a metallic teal acrylic paint, followed by a layer of clear varnish.

The balloon itself measures 4.5cm long by 2.5cm at its widest. I have added silver plated surgical steel earring wires, which are hypoallergenic, perfect for sensitive skin. These hot air balloon shape are suspended onto the earring wires by a section of small linked silver plated chain, attached to the little leaf bails on the back of the earrings. Total drop of the earring is approximately 5cm.

These fun earrings will come to you packed and protected (with acid free tissue padding if necessary) in an eco-friendly, recycled cardboard kraft card earring box that is made by a UK-based company that recycles UK and EU paper/card.


How fun are these wooden shapes! I thought that they would make such quirky earrings and I just love teal and jade colours, so that's what I decorated them with!
