Glasgow Rose Inspired Wire Earrings Tutorial

By on Wednesday, August 06, 2014 3 Comments

The Glasgow Rose, a stylized floral motif,  was often used by Glasgow Style artists and designers at the forefront of Scotland's  Arts and Crafts movement in the late 1800's.  British crafter, Emma Reid, of the Emuse blog created this fun Glasgow Rose inspired wire earrings tutorial.   The key ingredient after turning the wire into the shape she wanted was nail polish!


Nail polish is a great choice as it is a film forming polymer, not to mention, precolored! So long as the spaces between the wires aren't too large, the surface tension should be enough to form what looks like a miniature stained glass window!
