Snow Day Earrings - White with gold leaf, made from Polymer Clay.
These earrings are so pretty in real life! Something about the shapes in this design and the way they move. A great earring should have some movement and these have lots! Added bonus is that they are light as a feather. Individual components are attached with 14K Gold fill jump rings, to add movement and dimension to this style. The brass crescents add some sparkle for a finishing touch!
What makes these earrings special, is the hand fabricated 14K Gold filled ear wires. Most polymer clay earrings have post backs. This is because manufactured ear wires do not have loops big enough to accommodate the thickness of polymer clay. So clay artists use posts instead.
I decided when I started experimenting with polymer clay, that I would create an ear wire to work with my designs. Many prototypes later - I have created a version I'm happy with. This is my personal favorite way to wear earrings - with 14K gold filled ear wires.
Ear wire comes with a small silicone backer to keep the hook from coming out of your ear. I have lost many an earring when pulling off a sweater or scarf. Now I always use these backers with my ear wires. They will keep your earrings safe and secure. -
14K Gold fill chain with genuine rice, freshwater pearls, adorning the ends. Brass charm treated with Renaissance wax so that it won't tarnish.
Colours in this pair, white, gold and gold leaf.
Dimensions are 3.25" long x .75" wide.
This is a handmade item and minor variations may occur compared to the photo. Because of its handmade nature, slight imperfections are part of its charm. I promise each one of my creations have been made with lots of care and attention to detail to make them as perfect as possible. You will feel the love when you wear them!
