Upcycled Earrings made from Toy Dinosaurs - Silver Corythosaurus with Multicolor Glass Beads


I adore the contrast between the humor in toy dinosaurs and the elegance of silver and beautiful glass beads! I have a secret desire for someone to wear these with a cocktail gown :)

How does one make dinosaur earrings? I buy a lot of used toys in lots at yard sales and online, and I started collecting a whole bunch of tiny toys that weren't suitable for any of my other projects. After staring at them for months, I finally figured out that they would make excellent jewelry, and the dinosaur earrings were born! This pair has been drilled, primed and painted with acrylic black and silver paint, finished with a coat of poly, and then finished with wired beads and a metal ear hook. So much fun!

Height (from dinosaur feet to top of earring hook): 2 3/4"
Width (from tip of dinosaur tail to nose): 2"

Thanks for looking and please feel free to contact me through etsy with any questions!
