These colorful handmade earrings consist of dangly beveled-edge polymer clay tiles. The tiles feature a veneer of one of my signature millefiori designs. The tiles come in a variety of shapes and hang from unique copper, silver or brass ear wires.
The color and finish is inherent in the clay, which means I don’t use any paints or sealers. The pattern will never chip off. After baking, I wet-sand the tiles through several grits of sandpaper, and then buff them to bring up a soft shine. Because of this extensive finishing work, they are exceedingly smooth, and pleasant to touch.
I love to wear these colorful earrings with a simple handknit sweater and jeans in the cooler months. In the summer, you’ll often find me pairing them with a cheery sleeveless blouse and shorts.
Due to the fact that these items are handmade, and each one is unique, pattern placement and scale may vary from that depicted in the pattern sample swatches.
