Quickie DIY: Vintage Green Shell Earrings

Here's another quickie DIY I did. I picked up these vintage shell earrings in a grab bag lot at an estate sale recently. One was missing an earring hook, and the "silver" was peeling and tarnishing.

So, I used my 18 karat gold leafing pen by Krylon, and applied the gold leafing.
Then, I upgraded the hook to a French Hook with a clear stopper.

Last, I found a printable pdf from www.howaboutorange.blogspot.com and printed it out on brown kraft paper (from a box about to be recycled). Then, I cut the cards out, punched holes and hung the earrings.

Ta dah! They are ready for gift giving or selling, all nice and professional looking.
