Vintag Earrings

Whilst tidying I found my Vintaj embossing dies and copper shapes so had to play.  These earrings were the result of embossing, shaping (using a pestle and mortar) to give them a convex shape, rubbing with gesso, wiping off all gesso except that in the grooves, then painting with alcohol inks.

To be honest I'm not entirely happy with putting these through the big shot, anything but the lowest platform is too tight but that doesn't emboss very deeply, a shim however makes things pretty tight again and I was worried it would break the machine.
