Hi all , Welcome back!! After seeing many beaded earrings on pinterest I too wanted to make one. Since i dont have much beads with me I thought of using something alternative that will give the same look as coloured beads. While i was cooking, the idea of using Urad dal instead of beads striked me . So made these earrings using cardboard as the base , urad dal beads and acrylic paints.
Initially I started off by taking a think Cardboard sheet and cut it to the desired shape of the earring. Then I applied glue all over the cardboard and placed the ural dal layer by layer ( outer layer first then inner layer). Finally I painted using acrylics and applied a coat of varnish.
This is the inspiration Picture and i was inspired by the colours of this picture.
