YOJ2008 Week #3: Australian Culture

This week's piece is a pair of earrings based on the Australian Aboriginal Didgeridoos. I took a long bone pipe bead and sawed it into two, so that one end of each piece would be sort of flared. Then I painted aboriginal symbols on each piece with acrylic paints. I made the earwires and the headpins with sterling silver wires. After taking the pictures I realized that I have not painted the bottoms of the beads (Didgeridoos). LOL! Will do so tomorrow. It is 1:17am at night now. I just got done with this piece and another order.
