These handmade earrings were crafted from polymer clay and made to imitate rusted copper and bronze with a layer of patina. They are featuring an abstract pattern of and shaped into oval discs.
These beautiful earrings are a tromp l’oeil that will have many a friends wonder what they were made from.
The discs measure approx. 1 3/4 in or approx. 4.4 cm
The base has been wet-sanded before it was accented with acrylics. I also have washed them with a layer of clear gloss to protect them for the external environment.
The French wire is in a matching copper shade.
If you have any question regarding these earrings, please, contact me and I will be glad to answer.
Please, have in mind that what you see in the photo are the original earrings. Subsequent pairs will slightly vary.
= About polymer clay =
Polymer clay is a relatively new material. It is sold in blocks with a soft consistency similar to play-dough, but once cured, the clay hardens. Depending on clay brand, type of design, and processing, it can be very hard or semi-flexible. Most of the items in my collection such as cuffs and bib necklaces are semi-flexible so they are easy to put on. They are light and comfortable to wear, but quite sturdy. A polymer clay item can of course break, but I use a technique that makes them stronger and more resistant than what you can usually purchase.
My polymer clay items are finished with acrylics, mica powders, and other materials after being cured, and are coated with clear gloss to protect them. In the titles you will see described the colors of the items. A piece described as a copper polymer clay item is not made of copper, it is crafted of polymer clay so as to resemble copper in appearance.
