When I was designing these earrings, I wanted to create something a bit more elegant as usually Polymer Clay earrings have bright colours and vibrant textures. The use of the Opal effect polymer clay was a great revelation. I bit hard to work with while making the tiny petals and details but once baked, it turned out to be translucent and all the little sparkling elements came to life!
This pair of earrings is made with the embroidery technique. I first create a slab of polymer clay, cut all the little pieces that are then going to create the pattern and then cut into the shape I want, trying to include as much of the design as possible. I then refine each piece to include extra foliage or details.
I like matching the main component with a gemstone or bead that has the same colour palette and/or meaning to create something truly unique.
The hook and the wire component are all Sterling Silver and the lightweight of polymer clay make them wearable all day long without even noticing.
