I named these earrings “The Starless Sea” in honour to the audiobook I was listening to while creating them.
The book is about opening doors, getting lost and finally find ourselves. The intricacy of patterns is a symbol of all this. Tiny leaves in different shades of blue to adorn a maroon base and a touch of gold to connect all the elements. A freshwater pearl in similar colour shades to highlight the design.
I created this earrings using the polymer clay embroidery technique on a big slab of clay first, which I then cut into different circles, trying to catch as much detailing as possible in each.
Hooks are in sterling silver.
