Despite the risk that somebody will steal my revolutionary idea of vegan jewelry, I present you a very simple, few minutes build of organic earrings.
All we need is...
- Pliers - cutting & needle-nose
- Forceps - or alligator clips
- Jewelry wire - I used 0.5mm silver
- Chili Peppers - I used Chilly Chili
- Epoxy Resin - I used Devcon 2 Ton
- Ear wires
Step 1: Preparations
First we will cut off two pieces of jewelry wire, 10-12 cm in length, and twist it around a bicycle spoke to form the eyelets.
Then we prepare the fresh (!) chili peppers by washing, drying and removing the stem (Pedicel).
Step 2: Assembly
Next we gently insert the wires into the peppers with a twisting motion, making sure that we don't puncture them.
Then we mix the epoxy resin and apply it onto the peppers with a brush.
Once the resin is cured we mount the earring wire and we're done.
Please note that these kind of earrings will last for about a week (maybe two, if you keep them in the fridge), then they'll start to degrade.
